Mining Scalar Representations in a Non-tagged Music Database
In the continuing investigation of the relationship between music and emotions it is recognized that MPEG-7 based MIR systems are the state-of-the-art. Also, it is known that non-temporal systems are diametrically unconducive to pitch analysis, an imperative for key and scalar analysis which determine emotions in music. Furthermore, even in a temporal MIR system one can only find the key if the scale is known or vice-versa, one can only find the scale if the key is known. We introduce a new MIRAI-based decision-support system that, given a blind database of music files, can successfully search for both the scale and the key of an unknown song in a music database and accordingly link each song to its set of scales and possible emotional states.
