Abstract

Although current music recommender systems suggest new tracks to their users, they do not provide listenable explanations of why a user should listen to them. LEMONS (Demonstration video: https://​youtu.​be/​giSPrPnZ7mc) is a new system that addresses this gap by (1) adopting a deep learning approach to generate audio content-based recommendations from the audio tracks and (2) providing listenable explanations based on the time-source segmentation of the recommended tracks using the recently proposed audioLIME.
