The paper presents two experiments aimed at categorizing mood associated with music. Two parts of a listening test were designed and carried out with a group of students, most of whom where users of online social music services. The initial experiment was designed to evaluate the extent to which a given label describes the mood of the particular music excerpt. The second subjective test was conducted to collect the similarity data for the MDS (Multidimensional Scaling) analysis. Results were subject of various MDS and correlation analysis. Obtained MDS representation is relevant and remains coherent with acclaimed 2-dimensional Thayer’s model as well as with evaluation using six mood labels.
