Slides from IEEE-THEMES 2010 colocated with ICASSP. Paper to appear in August issue of Select Topics in Signal Processing. Abstract: This paper presents an extensive analysis of a sample of a social network of musicians. The network sample is first analyzed using standard complex network techniques to verify that it has similar properties to other web-derived complex networks. Content-based pairwise dissimilarity values between the musical data associated with the network sample are computed, and the relationship between those content-based distances and distances from network theory explored. Following this exploration, hybrid graphs and distance measures are constructed, and used to examine the community structure of the artist network. Finally, results of these investigations are presented and considered in the light of recommendation and discovery applications with these hybrid measures as their basis.

  • 25. experiments Max Flow v. Acoustic Distance – pairs of artist nodes grouped based on Maximum Flow – a randomized network was created as well to compare the relationship – results point toward a mostly orthogonal relationship – examining the mutual information shows that most information not common across spaces 25 Fields et. al - Analysis and Exploitation of Musician Social Networks
