This paper gives a survey of the infrastructure currently being developed in the MUSITECH project. The aim of this project is to conceptualize and implement a computational environment for navigation and interaction in Internet-based musical applications. This comprises the development of data models, exchange formats, interface modules and a software framework. Our approach is to integrate different information and media types like MIDI, audio, text based codes and metadata and their relations, especially to provide means to describe arbitrary musical structures. We attempt to connect different musical domains to support cooperations and synergies. To establish platform independence Java, XML (extensible markup language), and other open standards are used. The object model, a framework and various components for visualization, playback and other common tasks and the technical infrastructure are being developed and will be evaluated within the project.
