—Communication plays an important role in this edge. Music is one of the successful medium for people to communicate because of its universal characteristic. It is necessary to generate metadata for music impressions in order to communicate between cultures. Our system provides method to obtain culture-based musical impression. The method consists of 5 steps: 1) Music features extractions. 2) User impression collections. 3) User impression table creation. 4) Semantic correlation calculation and 5) Obtaining the highest ranking of semantic correlation. This method is able to realize the music impression generation according to Malaysian/Indonesian, Indian and Japanese Gagaku music as sample music. By this approach, an automatic generation for intercultural music or other media impression can be realized in order to bridge the culture divide.
—Music impression, culture-based music, metadata generation, intercultural.
