Sharing communities are changing the way audio clips are obtained in several areas, ranging from music to game design. The motivations for people to record and upload sounds to these sites are likely to be related to social factors. In this paper, we describe several networks that can be extracted from user activities in these systems. We propose the notion of creativity as an objective for this kind of community, and how some indicators of creativity can be extracted. We investigate the…

Computational Challenges of Co-Creation in Collaborative Music Live Coding : An Outline
Co-creation between a human agent (HA) and a virtual agent (VA) is an approach to collaboration that has been explored in different creative domains, particulary in computer music. With a few
Listen To Me - Don't Listen To Me: What Communities of Critics Tell Us About Music
TLDR
A complex network model of the activity on genius.com, a website which allows its users to annotate and explain the meaning of segments of lyrics in music and other written works, is examined, and a new measure of network community activity: community skew is introduced.
Characterization of the Freesound online community
TLDR
This paper proposes some qualitative and quantitative approaches for the characterization of the community of sound practitioners that has emerged in Freesound, focusing on the analysis of organizational structure, shared goals, user interactions and vocabulary sharing.
Freesound technical demo
TLDR
This demo wants to introduce Freesound to the multimedia community and show its potential as a research resource.
Composing with All Sound Using the FreeSound and Wordnik APIs

TLDR
Techniques for organizing and collaging sounds from the user-contributed database at freesound.org are demonstrated and three pieces generated from sound graphs using cellular automata, and swarm intelligence are elaborate on.
Tag Recommendation using Folksonomy Information for Online Sound Sharing Platforms
TLDR
A new perspective for tag recommendation is explored which, besides taking advantage of information from the folksonomy, employs a sound-specific ontology to guide users during the annotation process, and can be easily generalised and thus be of use to other information sharing platforms.
A framework for computer-assisted sound design systems supported by modelling affective and perceptual properties of soundscape
TLDR
A system called Audio Metaphor is outlined that is built upon the notion that sound design for soundscape compositions is emotionally informed and is revealed to be human-competitive regarding semantic and emotion-based indicators.
On alternative formulations of the small-world metric in complex networks
TLDR
Several of the drawbacks of the small-worldness metric are discussed, including its lack of denition in disconnected networks and the impossibility of assessing a statistical signicance; and alternative formulations to overcome these diculties are presented.
A Review of Machine Learning and Data Mining Approaches for Business Applications in Social Networks
TLDR
A review of the most important state-of-the-art approaches in the machine learning and data mining community regarding analysis of social networks and their business applications and the business potentials of such methods are presented.

TLDR
This paper describes the application of several network analysis techniques to the networks of users in audio clip sharing sites, and the analysis of the community structure of the semantic network using modularity optimization appears to be a good way to identify the different themes in the site.
Collaboration and Creativity: The Small World Problem1
Small world networks have received disproportionate notice in diverse fields because of their suspected effect on system dynamics. The authors analyzed the small world network of the creative artists
Small Worlds and Regional Innovation
TLDR
It is found that both shorter path lengths and larger connected components correlate with increased innovation and the existence of regional small-world structures and the emergence and disappearance of giant components in patent collaboration networks is revealed.

TLDR
This work proposes a number of measures of assortative mixing appropriate to the various mixing types, and applies them to a variety of real-world networks, showing that assortsative mixing is a pervasive phenomenon found in many networks.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the algorithms proposed are highly effective at discovering community structure in both computer-generated and real-world network data, and can be used to shed light on the sometimes dauntingly complex structure of networked systems.
Does citation reflect social structure?: Longitudinal evidence from the Globenet interdisciplinary research group
TLDR
Results show cocitation to be a powerful predictor of intercitation in the journal articles, while being an editor or co-author is an important predictor in the book.
Fast unfolding of community hierarchies in large networks
TLDR
This work decomposes the networks into communities of strongly connected nodes, with the nodes belonging to different communities only sparsely connected, and proposes algorithms to find reasonably “good” solutions of the problem in a reasonably ”fast” way.
