Abstract: We develop a formalism to disambiguate the evaluation of music information retrieval systems.
We define a “system,” what it means to “analyze” one, and make clear the aims, parts, design, execution, interpretation, and assumptions of its “evaluation.”
We apply this formalism to discuss the MIREX automatic mood classification task.
