Abstract

Digital music processing is involved in many subjects, including music genre prediction. Machine learning techniques were used to classify music genres in this research. Deep neural networks have recently been shown to be successful in a variety of classification tasks, including the classification of music genres. In recent years, deep neural networks have been shown to be effective in many classification tasks, including music genre classification. In this paper, we proposed two ways to improve music genre classification with convolutional neural networks: 1) combining max- and average pooling to provide more statistical information to higher level neural networks; 2) using shortcut connections to skip one or more layers, a method inspired by residual learning method. The input of the KNN is simply the short time Fourier transforms of the audio signal. The output of the KNN is fed into another deep neural network to do classification. By comparing two different network topologies, our preliminary experimental results on the GTZAN data set show that the above two methods can effectively improve the classification accuracy, especially the second one.
