- Abstract: Since officially began in 2005, the annual Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange (MIREX) has made great contributions to the Music Information Retrieval (MIR) research. By defining some important tasks and providing a meaningful comparison system, the International Music Information Retrieval Systems Evaluation Laboratory (IMIRSEL), organizer of the MIREX, drives researchers in the MIR field to develop more advanced system to fulfill the tasks. One of the important tasks is the Audio Artist Identification task, or the AAI task. We implemented a Deep Belief Network (DBN) to identify the artist by audio signal. As a matter of copyright, IMIRSEL didn't publish there data set and we had to construct our own. In our data set we got an accuracy of 69.87% without carefully choosing parameters while the best result reported on MIREX is 69.70%. We think our method is promising and we want to discuss with others.
