So I'm fairly certain this has been discussed before, but I'm going to pose the question again. Music Information Retrieval or something else? I prefer the term Music Informatics as I find it to be more generally encompassing of the sort of work that get labeled with the more well used term music information retrieval, but perhaps not?
I recently started as a Data Analysis Engineer with Musicmetric after completing a PhD at Goldsmiths, University of London. My research interests are in large (music) collection navigation, (music) recommenders, playlist construction and social music in general. I am an administrator of the MyPySpace open source project to create translation layers and interesting navigation tools to social networks in general and myspace in particular. I also DJ, mostly Drum and Bass, a bit of breaks and other things. The DJing is primarily in two places: The DJ Skool and Wired Radio Goldsmiths' Student run radio statio. I'm also the station's Audio Engineer.
