Welcome to MML14

MML 2014
  7th International Workshop on Machine Learning and Music

Barcelona, Spain
November 28, 2014
Motivation 
With the current explosion and quick expansion of music in digital formats, and the computational power of modern systems, 
research on machine learning and music is gaining increasing popularity. As complexity of the problems investigated by 
researchers on machine learning and music increases, there is a need to develop new algorithms and methods to solve 
these problems. The focus of this workshop is on novel methods which take into account or benefit from musical structure. 
MML 2014 aims to build on the previous six successful MML editions, MML’08MML’09MML'10MML’11,  MML'12 and 

Topics 
Papers in all applications on music and machine learning are welcome, including but not limited to 
  • automatic classification of music (audio and MIDI) 
  • style-based interpreter recognition
  • automatic composition and improvisation
  • music recommender systems, genre and tag prediction
  • score alignment
  • polyphonic pitch detection
  • chord extraction
  • pattern discovery
  • beat tracking
  • expressive performance modeling
Audio demonstrations are encouraged when indicated by the content of the paper.
