I had the opportunity to give a talk introducing Music Information Retrieval (MIR) to very interested audiences at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and the School of Music at Shanghai University. It was a great pleasure to meet faculty and students at these great institutions. Looking forward to being back to Shanghai soon!
It feels good to see one’s work properly valued!
…but you can also get my book cheaper.

I am happy to now have a complete set of teaching materials for my class on Audio Content Analysis and Music Information Retrieval publicly available. The online resources, also accessible through the book website, include video modules, accompanying slides with latex sources, and Matlab code for all figures, as well as linked book chapters. I plan to update the website soon with quiz questions and exercises linked to the video modules.
It was a pleasure to be invited for a talk on audio applications of Non-negative Matrix Factorization in Berlin!
I teamed up with Stefan Weinzierl to give a tutorial session on Music Performance Analysis at the AES Conference on Semantic Audio in Erlangen, Germany. It was a great little conference with two papers from my Music Informatics Group (on guitar solo detection and music performance assessment). I also had a chance to chair a paper session.
