Hi!  Thanks to all who went over my previous post.

So the First evaluation has started and this is my second blog. In the previous blog I had explained about my organization peragro and gave you a brief summary of what i will be doing this summer.

In this Blog i will tell you about what i have done so far.

I have made a plug-in that extracts features from an audio file using Essentia binaries. Essentia is a open-source library for audio analysis and audio-based music information retrieval. It contains an extensive collection of algorithms including audio input/output functionality, standard digital signal processing blocks, statistical characterization of data, and a large set of spectral, temporal, tonal and high-level music descriptors. The metadata (features) that can be extracted so far includes the following:
   1. Tempo
   2. italic name of tempo (tempo markings)
   3. beat count
   4. Chord
   5. Global key
   6. Average loudness
   7. Lossless

While installing Essentia we realized that our project has led to lots of dependencies and thats when my Mentors suggested to use docker containers and dockerize the project. And thats where I got to know about, what a docker is and its uses.

I would like to strongly thank my mentors who had always helped me whenever i got stuck and properly guiding me along. Got to learn many things from my Mentors and hope i will learn many more during this GSoC journey.
