Browsing Sound and Music Libraries by Similarity

This paper presents a prototype tool for browsing through multimedia libraries using content-based multimedia information retrieval techniques. It is composed of several groups of components for multimedia analysis, data mining, interactive visualization, as well as connection with external hardware controllers. The musical application of this tool uses descriptors of timbre, harmony, as well as rhythm and two different approaches for exploring/browsing content. First, a dynamic data mining allows the user to group sounds into clusters according to those different criteria, whose importance can be weighted interactively. In a second mode, sounds that are similar to a query are returned to the user, and can be used to further proceed with the search. This approach also borrows from multi-criteria optimization concept to return a relevant list of similar sounds.
