Automatic Musical Genre Classification Using a Flexible Approach
An automated method for classifying music signals into genres is proposed. Up to three genres are assigned to each example along with a measure of the degree of influence. The method is based on a structure formed by taxonomy of four hierarchical layers, with 29 genres in the lowest layer and 10 target genres in the higher layers. In more than 77% of the cases there was successful classification. The computational effort is sufficiently low that this method could be used in real time.
