Music Emotion Recognition (MER) involves modelling the relationship between musical features and expressed emotion. Previous work in this field concentrates on the extraction of spectrally derived acoustical and psychoacoustical features. However, this method has reached a ‘glass ceiling’ with respect to the accuracy in which MER algorithms can identify music emotion (Aucouturier & Pachet 2004).
