    We report on the tempo induction contest organized during the International Conference on Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR 2004) held at the University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain, in October 2004. The goal of this ...
  • Cano Vila, Pedro; Koppenberger, Markus; Wack, Nicolas (ACM Association for Computer Machinery, 2005)
    We present a metadata free system for the interaction with massive collections of music, the MusicSurfer. MusicSurfer automatically extracts descriptions related to instrumentation, rhythm and harmony from music audio ...
  • Gomes, Leandro de C.T.; Cano Vila, Pedro; Gómez Gutiérrez, Emilia, 1975-; Bonnet, Madeleine; Batlle i Mont, Eloi (Taylor & Francis, 2003)
    Although not a new issue, music piracy has acquired a new status in the digital era, as recordings can be easily copied and distributed. Watermarking has been proposed as a solution to this problem. It consists in embedding ...

    In this chapter, we provide an overview of state-of-the-art algorithms for the automatic description of music audio signals, both from a low-level perspective (focusing on signal characteristics) and a more musical perspective ...
  • Cano Vila, Pedro (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2007-04-27)
    Aquesta tesi tracta de cercadors d'audio basats en contingut. Específicament, tracta de desenvolupar tecnologies que permetin fer més estret l'interval semàntic o --semantic gap' que, a avui dia, limita l'ús massiu de ...

  • Zanin, Massimiliano; Buldú, Javier M.; Cano Vila, Pedro; Boccaletti, Stefano (AIP Publishing, 2008)
    We introduce the concept of decision cost of a spatial graph, which measures the disorder of a given network taking into account not only the connections between nodes but their position in a two-dimensional map. The ...

    The SIMAC project addresses the study and development of innovative components for a music information retrieval system. The key feature is the usage and exploitation of semantic descriptors of musical content that are ...
  • de Boer, Marteen; Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; Cano Vila, Pedro; Loscos, Àlex; Serra, Xavier (International Computer Music Conference, 2000)
    This paper presents the implementation aspects of a real-time system for morphing two voices in the context of a karaoke application. It describes the software design and implementation under a PC platform and it discusses ...
  • Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; Loscos, Àlex; Cano Vila, Pedro; Serra, Xavier; Kenmochi, Hideki (Audio Engineering Society, 2001)
    In this paper we present two different approaches to the modeling of the singing voice. Each of these approaches has been thought to fit in the specific requirements of two applications. These are an automatic voice impersonator ...
  • Buldú, Javier M.; Cano Vila, Pedro; Koppenberger, Markus; Almendral, Juan A.; Boccaletti, Stefano (IOP Publishing Ltd, 2007)
    We present an empirical study of the evolution of a social network constructed under the influence of musical tastes. The network is obtained thanks to the selfless effort of a broad community of users who share playlists ...
