A Study on Correlation between Tempo and Mood of Music

In this paper a study is carried out to identify a relationship between mood description and combinations of various tempos and rhythms. First, a short review of music recommendation systems along with music mood recognition studies is presented. In addition, some details on tempo and rhythm perception and detection are included. Then, the experiment layout is explained in which a song is first recorded and then its rhythm and tempo are changed. This constitutes the basis for a mood tagging test. Six labels are chosen for mood description. The results show a significant dependence between the tempo and mood of the music.
