Abstract

Music is widely used to accompany moving images. Just turn on the television and shut your eyes to experience this. Movie soundtracks enhance the viewers experience, TV commercials use music to communicate brand values and attract the attention of the viewer, and TV programs feature a wide range of music throughout. Much of this music is not composed specifically for this purpose but has another life in the commercial market place. The owners of these recordings and compositions are making great efforts to secure a place for their music in these media and employ expert intermediaries to ‘place’ music in films and TV. Some collections are organised into B2B digital libraries specifically for this purpose, which is known as music synchronisation. Naturally, the collections are organised by traditional metadata such as Artist, Title, Album and Genre. However as users don’t always know exactly what they are looking for, but know what it should sound like, additional facets such as Mood, Tempo and Subject are also employed. In this presentation Charlie Inskip will discuss how creative search is facilitated by these search engines and whether they may be improved.
