When users generate music playlists: When words leave off, music begins?

Stumpf, S. & Muscroft, S. (2011). When users generate music playlists: When words leave off, music begins?. Paper presented at the Third International Workshop on Advances in Music Information Research (AdMIRe) in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME), 11 - 15 July 2011, Barcelona, Spain.


Music systems that generate playlists are gaining increasing popularity, yet ways to select songs to be acceptable to users is still elusive. We present the results of an explorative study that focused on the language of musically untrained end users for playlist choices, in a variety of listening contexts. Our results indicate that there are a number of opportunities for playlist recommendation or retrieval systems, particularly by taking context into account.
