Abstract

As a user's digital music collection grows, it can become difficult to navigate. Music library programs aid in this task by organizing music according to tags such as artist or title. However these generally utilize a text based interface, and they do not take into account the content of the music itself. As such, they do not handle untagged or mistagged music well. Automated metrics exist, but are not as widely used since they have the potential to be unreliable. This paper presents a graph-based visual interface for exploring a library of music based on analysis of the content of the music rather than tag information, which allows the user to navigate a music library thematically.
