In this paper, we originally propose a music recommendation agent in a smart office to recommend music for users. Personal tastes are diverse, even the same person may have different preferences in different situations. Hence, our music recommendation is not only based on the user favorite genres but also the current mood of users. By collecting and analyzing the contextual information of users, the agent can automatically senses the mood of users and recommends music.
