Report subject: Searching for Music

Abstract:
Searchin for music has turned into a widely popular activity, both on the web as well as within commercial music databases. Yet, building suitable techniques to do so poses significant challenges. This talk will present some of the challenges underlying the concept of music search. It will show the different modalities affected, before focusing specifically on feature sets characterizing the audio content using signal processing techniques as well as psycho-acoustic models. We will further take a look at the integration of textual features for song lyrics analysis before demonstrating a few applications for music search and playlist generation, ranging from mobile devices to virtual worlds.
