C. Inskip. Listening to Movies - Creating a User-Centred Catalogue of Music for Films

  1. 1. Listening to moviescreating a user-centred catalogue of music for films.<br />Dr Charlie Inskip<br />charlesinskip@hotmail.com<br />
  2. 2. Summary<br />There is widespread use of pre-existing commercial music in film, TV, advertising and computer games.<br />Music supervisors and specialist music searchers are employed by film and games companies to find music to match moving images.<br />Previous research into the communications between them and music rights holders has shown there is a mismatch between their discourses, which causes difficulties in the music search process.<br />This talk discusses this mismatch and presents a cataloguing scheme designed to reflect the users’ way of thinking about music.<br />
  3. 3. Music Search Engines<br />
  4. 4. Identified Repertoires<br />
  5. 5. Music search engine evaluations<br />It appears from user evaluations that music search engines which provide more relevant results emphasise the Soundtrack and Music Repertoires over the Business and Cultural Repertoires.<br />
  6. 6. Communications model<br />

  18. 18. Key issues<br />Problems<br />Very time consuming<br />Scalability<br />Subjective<br />Consistency<br />Lack of integration with back-office systems<br />However<br />Grid helps maintain consistency<br />Flexibility of mood taxonomy<br />Manageable catalogue size<br />Links and existing metadata errors are checked during process<br />Proof of concept<br />
