Abstract: The paper presents a study on music mood categorisation. First, a review of music mood models is presented. Then, the preparation of a set of music excerpts to be used in the experiments and music parametrisation is described. Next, some listening tasks performed to obtain mood descriptors are introduced. Finally, the correlation between mood descriptors and features extracted from parameters is discussed. The paper concludes with some observations derived from the analysis performed.

Keywords: music information retrieval; MIR; music mood models; music emotion; music parametrisation; correlation analysis; mood classification; mood descriptors.
