Explore the development and analysis of practical and automatic methods for making accessible information contained in abstract formats of music, such as symbolic (sheet music), or digital audio samples (MP3), i.e., all the information that currently requires experienced human to extract. These include various tasks in which one can analyze music signals for, e.g., inferring or identifying the artist and song playing in a noisy environment like a pub (c.f. Shazam), organizing a music collection by genres (e.g., blues and/or hip hop), mood (e.g., restful or excited), or use (e.g., relaxation or exercise), determining the instruments playing in a recording (e.g., guitar and gong), the recording type (e.g., live or studio), (un)recommending music (e.g., “if you like Gustav Winckler, then you will not like L.O.C.”), creating playlists (e.g., “suggest a mix of songs from my collection for my new girlfriend”), composing new music (e.g., “mash together this Gustav Winckler song and that L.O.C. song”), automatic mastering (e.g., “what changes do I need to make to my song to make it more Pop-sounding?”), and so on.
