This paper presents first steps towards building a music information
system like last.fm, but with the major difference that the
data is automatically retrieved from the WWW using web content mining
techniques. We first review approaches to some major problems of
music information retrieval (MIR), which are required to achieve the ultimate
aim, and we illustrate how these approaches can be put together
to create the automatically generated music information system (AGMIS).
The problems addressed in this paper are similar and prototypical
artist detection, album cover retrieval, band member and instrumentation
detection, automatic tagging of artists, and browsing/exploring web pages
related to a music artist. Finally, we elaborate on the currently ongoing
work of evaluating the methods on a large dataset of more than 600, 000
music artists and on a first prototypical implementation of AGMIS.
