Music Genre Estimation from Low Level Audio Features

Despite the subjective nature of associating a certain song or artist with a specific musical genre, this type of characterization is frequently used to provide a convenient way of expressing very coarse information on the basic stylistic and rhythmic elements and/or instrumentation of a song. An audio database which is structured according to different musical genres is the first important step to provide an easy/intuitive access to a large music collection. Thus, a convenient way for indexing large databases by musical genre is desired. This paper describes a system which automatically classifies music into several musical genres. Different features as well as classification strategies will be evaluated and compared. The system's performance is assessed by means of a subjective listening test.
