Systematic Understanding of Music (2008-2011)

Today, digitally informed music has reached a point where it has become feasible to detect emotion content in the musical audio stream (sound). When this is applied in real-time to aspects of its response, a new context for the creation, performance and listening to music has been established where man and machine can interact in much more meaningful ways than previously. This will provide for new and more engaged expressions, giving new horizons for musical artwork. The purpose of the SUM project is to develop tools by building on existing work by internationally outstanding scholars in the Nordic countries in digital signal processing, music cognition, emotion expression, and interaction software development.
