Music Information Research Lab


We work on the following research topics: sound and music description, music information retrieval, singing voice synthesis, audio source separation, music and audio processing.

Our current challenges are: 

  • Exploit the multimodal character of music to enhance its automatic processing.
  • Reduce the semantic gap between automatic features and user descriptors through user-centered paradigms.
  • Connect music description and music creation.
  • Incorporate advanced learning techniques for music processing.
  • Apply our current know-how on singing voice modelling to statistical-based modelling of animal vocalizations.
