Fusing Audio and Semantic Technologies for Intelligent Music Production and Consumption (FAST)
This five-year EPSRC project brings the very latest technologies to bear on the entire recorded music industry, end-to-end, producer to consumer, making the production process more fruitful, the consumption process more engaging, and the delivery and intermediation more automated and robust.
The project addresses three main premises:
(i) that Semantic Web technologies should be deployed throughout the content value chain from producer to consumer;
(ii) that advanced signal processing should be employed in the content production phases to extract “pure” features of perceptual significance and represent these in standard vocabularies;
(iii) that this combination of semantic technologies and content-derived metadata leads to advantages (and new products and services) at many points in the value chain, from recording studio to end-user (listener) devices and applications
FAST is made up of researchers and practioners from Queen Mary, University of Nottingham, and Oxford e-Research Centre.
