Towards automated annotation of acousmatic music

Volkmar Klien, Thomas Grill, Arthur Flexer

At the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (OFAI) we are currently undertaking a two year research project entitled "Towards Automatic Annotation of Electroacoustic Music" investigating the possibilities and potential obstacles for finding (partial) solutions to problems related to computer assisted annotation of electroacoustic music. Setting aside technological issues pertaining to the relevant fields of signal processing and music information retrieval the paper at hand aims at outlining the reasons behind our choice of Smalley’s theory of spectromorphology (SM) as our conceptual background, issues pertaining to the role of the annotated score, the formalisation of spectromorphology for automation as well as potential limitations. Given that neither the manual annotation of acousmatic music nor the technical implementation thereof can be seen as straightforward matters, research in this area is still at a very basic level making fully automatic and even fully functional semiautomatic annotation of electroacoustic sound a long-term research goal.
