This paper proposes a novel music genre classification system based on two novel features and a weighted voting. The proposed features, modulation spectral flatness measure (MSFM) and modulation spectral crest measure (MSCM), represent the time-varying behavior of a music and indicate the beat strength. The weighted voting method determines the music genre by summarizing the classification results of consecutive time segments. Experimental results show that the proposed features give more accurate classification results when combined with traditional features than the octave-based modulation spectral contrast (OMSC) does in spite of short feature vector and that the weighted voting is more effective than statistical method and majority voting.
