Abstract

Music evokes various human emotions or creates music moods through low level musical features. In fact, typical music consists of one or more moods and this can be used as an important factor for determining the similarity between music. In this paper, we propose a new music retrieval scheme based on the mood change pattern. For this, we first divide music clips into segments based on low level musical features. Then, we apply K-means clustering algorithm for grouping them into clusters with similar features. By assigning a unique mood symbol for each group, each music clip can be represented into a sequence of mood symbols. Then, we estimate the similarity of music based on the similarity of their musical mood sequence using the Longest Common Subsequence (LCS) algorithm. To evaluate the performance of our scheme, we carried out various experiments and measured the user evaluation. We report some of the results.
