Playsound.space: enhancing a live performance tool with semantic recommendations

  title={Playsound.space: enhancing a live performance tool with semantic recommendations},
  author={Fabio Viola and Ariane Stolfi and Alessia Milo and Miguel Ceriani and Mathieu Barthet and Gy{\"o}rgy Fazekas},
Playsound is a simple and intuitive tool for collaborative music composition based on sounds from Freesound, an online repository of diverse audio content with Creative Commons licenses. In this paper, we present an approach based on Semantic Web technologies to provide recommendations to Playsound users. A Semantic Web of Things architecture is outlined, showing loosely coupled, independent software agents interoperating by means of a semantic publish/subscribe platform and a set of ontologies…

Playsound.space: Improvising in the browser with semantic sound objects
This paper describes the development and evaluation of the online music making tool Playsound.space and provides directions for future artistic and pedagogical applications that can benefit the design of other ubiquitous music systems.
Towards a Semantic Architecture for the Internet of Musical Things
This paper proposes a semantically-enriched Internet of Musical Things architecture which relies on a semantic audio server and edge computing techniques, and employs a SPARQL Event Processing Architecture as an interoperability enabler allowing multiple heterogeneous Musical Things to cooperate.
From Music Ontology towards Ethno-Music-Ontology
Analysis of four contrasting case studies from a variety of musical cultures sheds light on the generality of the Music Ontology and on the limits of generalisation “for all musics” that could be aspired for on the Semantic Web.
Deliverable D 6 . 12 Report on the evaluation of the ACE from a holistic and technological perspective
The QMUL-funded AudioCommons project aims to create an ecosystem for Creative Reuse of Audio Content and provide a platform for non-commercial reuse of audio content for educational and commercial purposes.
The Internet of Audio Things: State of the Art, Vision, and Challenges
The state of the art of this field is reviewed, then a vision for the IoAuT is presented, which enables the connection of digital and physical domains by means of appropriate information and communication technologies, fostering novel applications and services based on auditory information.


Linked Data and You: Bringing Music Research Software into the Semantic Web
The extent to which the OMRAS2 tools and frameworks can assist in research and facilitate distributed work among audio and music researchers is assessed, and further steps to improve collaborative efforts in music informatics using the Semantic Web are motivated.
Playsound.space: Inclusive Free Music Improvisations Using Audio Commons
Results indicate that the system was found easy to use and supports creative collaboration and expressiveness irrespective of musical ability.
An Ontology for Audio Features
Novel Semantic Web ontologies are proposed to provide a common structure for feature data formats and to represent computational workflows of audio features facilitating their comparison.
Freesound 2: An Improved Platform for Sharing Audio Clips
Freesound.org is an online collaborative sound database where people from different disciplines share recorded sound clips under Creative Commons licenses. It was started in 2005 and it is being
A Semantic Publish-Subscribe Architecture for the Internet of Things
A novel event detection algorithm, tailored on the IoT specificities (i.e., heterogeneous events need to be detected and continuous updates of few RDF triples dominate with respect to more complex updates), is presented along with the envisioned application design pattern and performance evaluation model.
Dynamic Linked Data: A SPARQL Event Processing Architecture
A decentralized Web-based architecture designed to support the development of distributed, dynamic, context-aware and interoperable services and applications that enables the detection and notification of changes over the Web of Data by means of a content-based publish-subscribe mechanism.
A SPARQL Extension for Generating RDF from Heterogeneous Formats
A new language, SPARQL-Generate, that generates RDF from: (i) a RDF Dataset, and (ii) a set of documents in arbitrary formats, and it is shown that this first naive open source implementation performs better than the reference implementation of RML for big transformations.
Fab: content-based, collaborative recommendation
It is explained how a hybrid system can incorporate the advantages of both methods while inheriting the disadvantages of neither, and how the particular design of the Fab architecture brings two additional benefits.
