Genre-oriented Organization of Music Collections Using the SOMeJB System : An Analysis of Rhythm Patterns and Other Features

TLDR
This paper reviews the SOMeJB system and presents performance evaluations of the resulting hierarchical genre clusters and compares the Rhythm Pattern based clustering with cluster structures obtained from other sets of features employed for genre-based music analysis.

Music mood classification using visual and acoustic features

TLDR
This work aims to present a system for automatic music mood classification based on acoustic and visual features extracted from the music, considering three mood classes: positive, negative, and neutral.

Data Collection for Individuality Analysis of Subjective Music Similarity

TLDR
An optimized distance function was trained and improved the precision of similarity estimation for vocals, demonstrating the effectiveness of individual optimization using weighted Euclidean distance.

Automatically Analyzing and Organizing Music Archives

TLDR
The Self-Organizing Map is employed to create a map of a musical archive, where pieces of music with similar sound characteristics are organized next to each other on the two-dimensional map display, allowing intuitive exploration of a music archive.

Music-listening systems

TLDR
This dissertation examines the psychoacoustic origins of the early stages of music listening in humans, using both experimental and computer-modeling approaches to form a set of computer signal-processing and pattern-recognition tools that can mimic human perceptual abilities on a variety of musical tasks.

Towards a digital library of popular music

TLDR
A comprehensive suite of tools that gather musical material, convert between many of these representations, allow searching based on combined musical and textual criteria, and help present the results of searching and browsing are described.

Automatic Musical Genre Classification of Audio Signals

TLDR
Algorithms for the automatic genre categorization of audio signals are described and a set of features for representing texture and instrumentation and a novel set of Features for representing rhythmic structure and strength are proposed.

Automatic indexing of a sound database using self-organizing neural nets

One of the main problems in sound synthesis is that the composer's idea or concept of a sound does not necessarily correspond directly to the physical parameters of synthesis algorithms. In regard to

Content-based organization and visualization of music archives

TLDR
With Islands of Music, a system which facilitates exploration of music libraries without requiring manual genre classification is presented, given pieces of music in raw audio format, their perceived sound similarities based on psychoacoustic models are estimated and organized on a 2-dimensional map.

Self-Organization of Very Large Document Collections: State of the Art

TLDR
This work has made SOMs of collections of over one million documents, where each document is mapped onto some grid point, with a link from this point to the document database, and new effective coding and computing schemes of the mapping are described.

Modeling the judgment of vowel quality differences.

The hypothesis of this study is that the auditory cues relevant to listeners' judgment of vowel quality are a spectral representation of loudness density versus pitch. A model is described that

A practical query-by-humming system for a large music database

TLDR
New technologies for improving retrieval accuracy, such as partial feature vectors and or'ed retrieval among multiple search keys, are proposed, and it is found that the retrieval accuracy increases by more than 20% compared with the previous system.

A taxonomy of musical genres

TLDR
This work describes a novel music genre taxonomy based on a few guiding principles, and reports on the process of building this taxonomy.
