We present the design and evaluation of an in-\ud teractive tool for music exploration, with musi-\ud cal mood and genre inferred directly from tracks.\ud \ud It uses probabilistic representations of multivari-\ud able predictions of subjective characteristics of\ud \ud the music to give users subtle, nuanced visuali-\ud sations of the 2D map. These explicitly repre-\ud sent the uncertainty and overlap among features\ud \ud and support music exploration and casual playlist\ud \ud generation. A longitudinal trial in users’ homes\ud \ud showed that probabilistic highlighting of subjec-\ud tive features led to more focused exploration in\ud \ud mouse activity logs, and 6 of 8 users preferred\ud \ud the probabilistic highlighting.
