A Comprehensive Survey for Evaluation Methodologies of AI-Generated Music

Abstract

In recent years, AI-generated music has made significant progress, with several models performing well in multimodal and complex musical genres and scenes. While objective metrics can be used to evaluate generative music, they often lack interpretability for musical evaluation. Therefore, researchers often resort to subjective user studies to assess the quality of the generated works, which can be resource-intensive and less reproducible than objective metrics. This study aims to comprehensively evaluate the subjective, objective, and combined methodologies for assessing AI-generated music, highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. Ultimately, this study provides a valuable reference for unifying generative AI in the field of music evaluation.
