Interactive Music Archive Access System
Document Type Conference Paper
IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo, ICME, Singapore, 2010
The goal of the Interactive Music Archive Access System (IMAAS) project was to develop an interactive music archive access system which was capable of allowing an end-user to easily extract rhythmic, melodic and harmonic musical metadata descriptors from audio, and allow the user to interact with the archive contents in a manner not typically allowed in archive access systems. To this end, the IMAAS system incorporates a range of real-time interaction tools which allow the user to modify the retrieved audio in a number of ways including the ability to isolate individual instruments in stereo mixes, pitch and time-scale modiﬁcation, and beat-synchronous looping. This demo gives an overview of the capabilities of the IMAAS application.
