Qualification (a)verbale de l'humeur musicale : nouvelles perspectives pour la synchronisation dans l'audiovisuel

Abstract : (A)verbal qualification of musical mood : new perspectives for synchronization in the audiovisual industry The music is part of all films produced within the audiovisual and cinematographic industries. It can preexist the film, be destined to be part of the traditional music industry or to be especially synchronized with pictures. In this case, the music excerpt sought after is usually lost in endless media bases providing their own Information Retrieval Systems (IRS). Whereas in the Anglo-Saxon world Music Supervisors (MS) are genuine experts in the use of these systems, it is not the same across Continental Europe. Per accidens MS are asked to translate the desired musical mood into queries for these IRSs, systems that they are sometimes using for the first time. In order to make this task easier for these non-specialists, we explored two approaches. The first led us to explore the possibilities offered by semantic proxemics in order to clean tag clouds mixing taxonomies and folksonomies to trace new relationships between media or to reject qualitatively aberrant qualifications. The second consisted in finding a way to do so without verbalisation. After a review of extant solutions developed for the needs of many other disciplines (experimental psychology, sciences of education, marketing, etc.), we managed to prototype SYM (Spot Your Mood). Instead of relying on verbalisations, SYM makes it possible to provide relatively intuitive spatial coordinates out of a valence-arousal space. Also, SYM has been put to use for many other adaptations in order to qualify user or spectator experience as well as to help elicit the mood with audiences suffering from various verbal or communicational impairments.
