Abstract:We introduce and test an affective music player (AMP) that selects music for mood enhancement. Through a concise overview of content, construct, and ecological validity, we elaborate five considerations that form the foundation of the AMP. Based on these considerations, computational models are developed, using regression and kernel density estimation. We show how these models can be used for music selection and how they can be extended to fit in other systems. Subsequently, the success of the models is illustrated with a user test. The AMP augments music listening, where its techniques, in general, enable automated affect guidance. Finally, we argue that our AMP is readily applicable to real-world situations as it can 1) cope with noisy situations, 2) handle the large inter-individual differences apparent in the musical domain, and 3) integrate context or other information, all in real-time.
