TheMusical Avatar

Martín Haro, Anna Xambó, Ferdinand Fuhrmann, Dmitry Bogdanov, Emilia Gómez, Perfecto Herrera
2010 Proceedings of the 5th Audio Mostly Conference on A Conference on Interaction with Sound - AM '10  
Finally, we map this collection-wise description to the visual domain by creating a humanoid cartoony character that represents the user's musical preferences.  ...  In this paper we propose a method to automatically generate, given a provided set of preferred music tracks, an iconic representation of a user's musical preferences -the Musical Avatar.  ...  Given a collection of music tracks, provided by the user as a prototypical example of his/her musical preferences, we extract descriptive information from the audio of each of these files, and design a  ...

"An Avatar . . . in a Physical Space": Researching the Mediated Immediacy of Electronic Dance Floors

Botond Vitos
2004 Dancecult: Journal of Electronic Dance Music Culture  
Emphasising the merits of ethnographic fieldwork in electronic dance music research, I call for a reading of Baudrillard that allows an empirically based exploration of his concepts.  ...  This article argues for the application of Baudrillardian theory in the investigation of such experiences, contending that the chemical and musical object of electronic dance music is capable of the virtualisation  ...  Acknowledgements Thanks particularly to Graham St John for his thorough feedback and advice, as well as to Luis-Manuel Garcia and the anonymous reviewers for commenting on earlier drafts of this text.  ...

Content-based Music Recommendation: Evolution, State of the Art, and Challenges [article]

Yashar Deldjoo, Markus Schedl, Peter Knees
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Based on a thorough literature analysis, we first propose an onion model comprising five layers, each of which corresponds to a category of music content we identified: signal, embedded metadata, expert-generated  ...  Furthermore, articles are discussed in temporal order to shed light on the evolution of content-driven music recommendation strategies.  ...  A limitation of the approach is the quite simple music preference model which is defined as the mean over the Spotify audio features of the user's listened tracks.  ...

Making Music, Finishing Music – An Inquiry Into the Music-Making Practice of Popular Electronic Music Students in the "Laptop-Era" [chapter]

Andreas Waaler Røshol, Eirik Sørbø
2020 Music Technology in Education  
In this study we seek to present a description of how bachelor and masters students in popular electronic music experience making original music in their chosen Digital Audio Workstation (DAW).  ...  We see a tendency in how participants attribute the technical component of music making as the defining aspect of the producer role.  ...  This research is conducted as a part of the SALTO project (Student-Active Learning in a Two-Campus Organization) and is funded by NTNU Toppundervisning.  ...

Semi-autonomous avatars in world of minds

Mirjam Palosaari Eladhari, Michael Mateas
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 International Conference in Advances on Computer Entertainment Technology - ACE '08  
Means of expression through body-language, types of actions performed, and reaction tendencies can express the nature of specific avatars to other players in the same world.  ...  Players can be relieved of cognitive and operational load by for example automating the animations of body-language of avatars.  ...  A core dynamic is a particular pattern of play. The expression self is used in the meaning described by Turkle [54] .  ...

Ambient music experience in real and virtual worlds using audio similarity

Jakob Frank, Thomas Lidy, Ewald Peiszer, Ronald Genswaider, Andreas Rauber
2008 Proceeding of the 1st ACM international workshop on Semantic ambient media experiences - SAME '08  
Different systems and interfaces exist for the broad range of needs in music consumption. Locating a particular recording is well supported by traditional search interfaces via metadata.  ...  In this paper we will present a set of systems that support the creation of as well as the navigation in musical spaces, both in the real world as well as in virtual environments.  ...  Since each audio source has a specific location, a user can orientate not only by the visual feedback but also by perceiving the loudness and direction of the audio sources.  ...

A content-based system for music recommendation and visualization of user preferences working on semantic notions

Dmitry Bogdanov, Martin Haro, Ferdinand Fuhrmann
2011 2011 9th International Workshop on Content-Based Multimedia Indexing (CBMI)  
Using these services, the system retrieves a set of tracks preferred by a user, and further computes a semantic description of musical preferences based on raw audio information.  ...  Thereafter, the system generates music recommendations, using a semantic music similarity measure, and a user's preference visualization, mapping semantic descriptors to visual elements.  ...  Acknowledgments This research has been partially funded by the FI Grant of Generalitat de Catalunya (AGAUR).  ...

2013 Information Processing & Management  
In the second application, we address the visualization of the user's musical preferences by creating a humanoid cartoon-like character -the Musical Avatar -automatically inferred from the semantic representation  ...  In the present work we propose a content-based technique to automatically generate a semantic representation of the user's musical preferences directly from audio.  ...  This research has been partially funded by the FI Grant of Generalitat de Catalunya (AGAUR) and the Buscamedia (  ...

As a result, the act of blackface in video game voice acting still occurs because of colorblind claims surrounding the digital medium and culture of games.  ...  I focus on three time periods: the Intellivision Intellivoice and the invention of a "universal" voice in video games; early American radio in the 1920s-1930s and the national standardization of voice;  ...  Rhetorically, the visual and audio arrangement and timing aligns the voice of the Intellivoice with the voice of Plimpton.  ...
