Machine Learning and Neural Networks for the Perceptually Relevant Analysis of Music

Music contains structural information as well as semantic connotations which are easy to perceive by human listeners, but which are difficult to extract automatically from an acoustic event (and even from the score of a given piece of music). Here we explore new techniques from the machine learning and the mathematical music theory fields with the goal to create semantically meaningful representations from acoustic events and to automatically extract perceptually relevant patterns from music and sound.<br /><br />Acknowledgement: Research was funded by the EU and by the Technische Universität Berlin.
