    The Internet is not only the global data highway but also the upcoming fourth mass medium. In this role, it procreates new musical genres and new roles of musical content providers and consumers. In an attempt to contribute to and explore this exciting (r)evolution, we developed GlobeMusic, a novel system and concept for eMusic-Making. Major ingredients of GlobeMusic were developed and exposed to ... View full abstract»

    In recent years, the popularity of online radio has exploded. This new entertainment medium affords an opportunity not available to conventional broadcast radio: the instantaneous listening audience can be known, or what is more important, the musical tastes of the current listening audience can be known. Thus, it is possible in the new medium to tailor the playlist in real-time to the musical tas... View full abstract»

    The fruition of musical score by means of multimedia systems requires a suitable model for automatic or interactive expressive music performance. The authors present a method for controlling the mutable musical expressiveness in an abstract way, not necessarily working directly on the acoustic parameters. Our approach integrates symbolic and audio processing in a real-time networked environment. W... View full abstract»

    The authors examine a number of methods for text processing, principally coming from computational biology, and examine in which manner they can apply to musical analysis. Then, we propose a number of modifications that can be made to these methods to allow for a better application to musical analysis. To this end, we first examine the practices of musical analysis. We focus on the field of extrac... View full abstract»

    We present a novel protocol to transmit time ordered events in real-time over the Internet and to operate a correct time rendering on the receiver side. This protocol provides solutions to compensate for the network latency, to optimize the bandwidth use and to take account of the clock drift of the different stations involved in a transmission. It is particularly suitable to transmit musical even... View full abstract»

    We are working on several projects addressing the digitalization and restoration of legacy musical archives. We are dealing with several sources of musical information (audio, notation, performance, video, images, etc.). On one hand, these sources are similar to those of usual multimedia databases. On the other hand, some specific feature of legacy musical archives call for ad-hoc solutions. In le... View full abstract»

    Music classification is a key ingredient for electronic music distribution. Because of the lack of standards in music classification (or the lack of enforcement of existing standards), there is a huge amount of unclassified music titles in the world. The authors propose a classification method based on a musical data mining technique based on co-occurrence and correlation analysis that can be used... View full abstract»

    The optical music recognition problem has been addressed in several ways, obtaining suitable results only when simple music constructs are processed. The most critical phase of the optical music recognition process is the first analysis of the image sheet. The first analysis consists of segmenting the acquired sheet into smaller parts which may be processed to recognize the basic symbols. The segm... View full abstract»
