This paper presents some results on automatic characterisation of musical and acoustic signals in terms of features attributed to signal segments. These features describe some of the musical and acoustical content of the sound and can be used in applications such as intelligent sound processing, retrieval of music and sound in databases or music editing and labeling. The paper describes a research work at the moment in a very advanced stage but not complete. Applications and results on various examples are presented.
