Millions of years of genetic evolution have shaped our auditory system, allowing to discriminate acoustic events in a flexible manner. We can perceptually process multiple de-correlated scales in a multidimensional way. In addition, humans have a natural ability to extract a coherent structure from temporal shapes. We show that emulating these mechanisms in our algorithmic choices, allow to create efficient approaches to perform matching and classification, with a scope beyond musical issues. We introduce the problem of multiobjective Time Series (MOTS) and propose an efficient algorithm to solve it. We introduce two innovative querying paradigms on audio files. We introduce a new classification paradigm based on the hypervolume dominated by different classes called hypervolume-MOTS (HV-MOTS). This system studies the behavior of the whole class by its distribution and spread over the optimization space. We show an improvement over the state of the art methods on a wide range of scientific problems. We present a biometric identification systems based on the sounds produced by heartbeats. This system is able to reach low error rates equivalent to other biometric features. These results are confirmed by the extensive cardiac data set of the Mars500 isolation study. Finally, we study the problem of generating orchestral mixtures that could best imitate a sound target. The search algorithm based on MOTS problem allows to obtain a set of solutions to approximate any audio source.
