English abstract:
The pervasion of digital music calls for novel techniques to
search, retrieve and access music collections. Particularly
mobile devices are, due to their limited display size and input
capabilities, in a need of possibilities for intuitive and quick
selection of music that go beyond mere browsing through
song lists and directories. We propose a graphical user in-
terface for mobile devices presenting a music map that or-
ganizes a music collection automatically by sound similarity
through audio analysis. This map provides an overview over
large audio collections and o ers several interaction possibil-
ities to give users a quick and direct access to their music.
It allows instant creation of playlists based on music of a
desired genre by pointing on clusters or drawing paths on
the map. The application not only eases access to music,
but also enables novel application scenarios for collaborative
music experience. The software has been implemented for a
range of mobile devices, such as PDAs and smartphones.
