Since October, I am pursuing a PhD project on culture-aware music information retrieval. Following an actual paradigm in this area, I will be exploring ways to combine both cultural metadata and acoustic features of songs in applications for music retrieval and recommendation.
Juppie says, this means I may make lots of fine sweets from each great songs audio content and garnish them with the songs’ correspondent Last.fm user tag data. These are afterwards thrown in a big kettle which will gurgle the music you intimately most wish to hear at that precise moment.
While it will take a while to get to that point, you may listen to my music and come along or just subscribe to the relevant RSS stream in the research section. Soon, you’ll find a more precise explanation of my researches’ direction on this page.
