Abstract:


Paths drawn to a Music Map are used to quickly and intuitively create playlists by drawing gures onto the map surface. In this paper the correlation between the quality of a playlist and its visual shape on a Music Map is investigated. A series of amateur and professional playlists together with generated playlists are analysed according to their visualisation on a Music Map. Furthermore, the playlists are evaluated in a small user study where rated quality by the users is compared to the graphical representation and the song distances in di fferent feature spaces.
