Abstract

Genetic algorithms have been introduced to the field of media segmentation including image, video, and also music segmentation since segmentation problems usually have complex search spaces. Music segmentation can give insight into the structure of a music composition so it is an important task in music information retrieval (MIR). Past approaches have applied genetic algorithms to achieve the segmentation of a single music track. However, music compositions usually contain multiple tracks so single track segmentations might miss important global structure information. This paper focuses on the introduction of an island model genetic algorithm to achieve single track segmentations with respect to the global structure of the composition.
