Audio Commons: an Ecosystem for Creative Reuse of Audio Content

End-user searches for timbral attributes

The plot below shows a weighted hierarchical ontology of timbral attributes resulting from work undertaken by the IoSR for the EU-funded AudioCommons project, as part of the work described here. It shows the resulting structure of attributes, with the weightings of each attribute determined by the frequency of searches for each attribute in data from Freesound. Hovering the mouse over each block shows the timbral attribute which encompasses all children below it. Clicking a category zooms to that level to show more detail, and clicking the centre of the diagram moves up a level.

This plot is based on this example, and the tooltip addition used here. The plot is based on D3.js.
