What Really Moves Us in Music: Expressivity as a Challenge to Semantic Audio Research
Sprache des Titels:
Proceedings of the 53rd AES Conference on Semantic Audio, Audio Engineering Society, London, Jan. 2014.
Semantic Audio and Music Information Retrieval (MIR) Research have led
to some spectacular successes in recent years. In this presentation I will
introduce performance expression as an important dimension of the
'semantics' of a piece of music;
discuss and demonstrate what it means to extract, quantify, characterise, and model this via machine;
review recent work on computational modelling of performance expression;
sketch possible application scenarios;
and identify pertinent research challenges for our field.
Generally, my aim is to promote a field of research that not all attendees of this conference may be so familiar with and that, I believe, is of real
importance when we speak of the 'semantics' of musical audio.
