AbstractWe present a system for creating new versions of a given song (“Seed Song”). The principal novelty in our approach centres on the use of multitrack audio session to extract more accurate and specific information, rather than use the final mix of that song. The system analyses every audio track of the audio session to extract features that will help preserving the melodic\tonal, rhythm and timbre content of the “Seed Song”. Then the system reconstructs the song using freely available audios from the Freesound Community. Central to our system is an objective (melodic\tonal preservation, rhythm preservation, timbre preservation) and subjective (originality and interestingness) evaluation via a listening test to examine the listener’s acceptance of the songs created by the system.
