Real-Time Emotion-Driven Music Engine



Emotion-Driven Music Engine (EDME) is a computer sys- tem that intends to produce music expressing a desired emotion. This paper presents a real-time version of EDME, which turns it into a stand- alone application. A real-time music production engine, governed by a multi-agent system, responds to changes of emotions and selects the more suitable pieces from an existing music base to form song-like structures, through transformations and sequencing of music fragments. The music base is composed by fragments classified in two emotional dimensions: valence and arousal. The system has a graphic interface that provides a front-end that makes it usable in experimental contexts of different sci- entific disciplines. Alternatively, it can be used as an autonomous source of music for emotion-aware systems.
