Automatic music monitoring of public performance
August 4, 2022 - December 31, 2023
NCSR budget: 195,125€
A “public performance” of music is defined in most EU and US countries copyright laws to include any music played outside a small circle of friends and family that occurs in any public place. The goal of this project is to build an algorithmic pipeline that runs on a small device (such as Raspberry PI) and monitors songs in spaces such as restaurants, hotels, cafes, clubs and bars. The two project partners are MagCIL and GEA. MagCIL builds the core algorithmic infrastructure of the project, utilising its expertise in fields such as audio analysis, music information retrieval and signal processing. GEA is the official music copyright collective management organisation of Greece and is responsible for pricing such businesses that use music.
