Hi, I'm Matthias. Welcome to my website and blog!
I'm a lecturer and researcher in the field of music informatics. I currently work as a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow with the Centre for Digital Music at Queen Mary, University of London (see my Queen Mary web page).
Past work places include the Internet music platform Last.fm, where I worked as Research Fellow, the Japanese research centre AIST in Tsukuba, and, as a research student, the Centre for Digital Music. Find more info on my biography page.
My main research interest (and the subject of my PhD thesis) has been the automatic transcription of chords from audio, but I've also done work on segmentation, harpsichord tuning estimation and, recently, lyrics-to-audio alignment. Please do have a look at my publications website to learn more about my work, ask Google Scholar directly, or visit my Software site if you're more interested in just using it.
