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 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
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.
MUSART: Music Retrieval Via Aural Queries
MUSART is a research project developing and studying new techniques for music information retrieval. The MUSART architecture uses a variety of representations to support multiple search modes.
Query by humming: musical information retrieval in an audio database
TLDR
A system for querying an audio database by humming is described along with a scheme for representing the melodic information in a song as relative pitch changes, and the performance results of system indicating its effectiveness are presented.
A Machine Learning Approach to Musical Style Recognition
TLDR
This work demonstrates that machine learning can be used to build effective style classifiers for interactive performance systems and presents an analysis explaining why these techniques work so well when hand-coded approaches have consistently failed.
