IM Public Lecture: Dr. Xiao Hu

Cross-Cultural Studies on Music Mood Perception and Recognition

Music Information Retrieval (MIR), as an interdisciplinary area of research, has developed rapidly in recent decades. MIR research has historically focused on Western music and context, with few studies discussing issues and challenges related to non-Western music or users with a non-Western cultural background. In this lecture, I will present two studies on cross-cultural music mood perception and recognition. One is a comparison of music mood perceptions between American and Chinese listeners. The second is on cross-cultural generalizability of automatic music mood recognition models.
