In this paper, we propose a unified approach to fast index-based music recognition. As an important area within the field of music information retrieval (MIR), the goal of music recognition is, given a database of musical pieces and a query document, to locate all occurrences of that document within the database, up to certain possible errors. In particular, the identification of the query with regard to the database becomes possible. The approach presented in this paper is based on a general algorithmic framework for searching complex patterns of objects in large databases. We describe how this approach may be applied to two important music recognition tasks: The polyphonic (musical score-based) search in polyphonic score data and the identification of pulse-code modulation audio material from a given acoustic waveform. We give an overview on the various aspects of our technology including fault-tolerant search methods. Several areas of application are suggested. We describe several prototypic systems we have developed for those applications including the notify! and the audentify! systems for score- and waveform-based music recognition, respectively.
