In this paper we present an alternative approach for music genre classification which converts the audio signal into spectrograms and then extracts features from this visual representation. The idea is that treating the time-frequency representation as a texture image we can extract features to build reliable music genre classification systems. The proposed approach also takes into account a zoning mechanism to perform local feature extraction, which has been proved to be quite efficient. On a… CONTINUE READING
