  5. 5. Organization of Electronic Dance Music by Dimensionality Reduction

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Victor Tideman; [2022]
    Keywords : Dimensionality Reduction; Digital Signal Processing; Similarity; Music;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to produce a similarity metric for tracks of the genre: Electronic Dance Music, by taking a high-dimensional data representation of each track and then project it to a low-dimensional embedded space (2D and 3D) by applying two Dimensionality Reduction (DR) techniques called t-distributed stochastic neighbor embedding (t-SNE) and Pairwise Controlled Manifold Approximation (PaCMAP). A content-based approach is taken to identify similarity, which is defined as the distances between points in the embedded space. READ MORE
