What is The Musical Avatar?
The Musical Avatar is an iconic representation of one's musical preferences.
How does it work?
This representation is generated from a provided set of preferred music tracks, where different acoustic features are automatically computed. Then, by applying pattern recognition methods, we infer a set of semantic descriptors for each track in the collection. Next, we summarize these track-level semantic descriptors, obtaining a user profile. Finally, we map this collection-wise description to the visual domain by creating a humanoid cartoony character that represents the user’s musical preferences.
