MusiClef is a multimodal music benchmarking initiative that will be running a MediaEval 2012 Brave New Task on Multimodal Music Tagging. This paper describes the setup of this task, showing how it complements existing benchmarking initiatives and fosters less explored methodological directions in Music Information Retrieval. MusiClef deals with a concrete use case, encourages multimodal approaches based on these, and strives for transparency of results as much as possible. Transparency is encouraged at several levels and stages, from the feature extraction procedure up to the evaluation phase, in which a dedicated categorization of ground truth tags will be used to deepen the understanding of the relation between the proposed approaches and experimental results.
