    Intellectual property rights (IPR) management is a key issue for the deployment of real e-commerce and multimedia content distribution on the Web. The music market is well aware of this problem, and very different approaches are being considered to cope with it. One valid approach is to develop standards allowing interoperability of solutions, and MPEG is one international standardisation initiati... View full abstract»

    Copyright in the digital age is both threatened and renewed by technical developments. Cultural heritage is becoming widely accessible; authors and editors can broadly distribute music, films, books and multimedia in new formats. However, the technique does not only encourage piracy, it also provides electronic intellectual property rights management tools. This paper proposes to lead a general le... View full abstract»

  • Representation and rendering of rhythm structures

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):109 - 113
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (257 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We propose a format and a set of tools for the rendering of computer musical notation. The proposed format is not to be considered as a universal standard. Nevertheless, it appears to be an efficient approach to musical notation. The proposed format might be thought of as a contribution to future or existing implementations of musical editors. We try to provide general guidelines and schemes that ... View full abstract»

    We have developed a prototype music visualization system that shows the whole piece in a computer window, however long the piece and no matter how many parts it includes, as well as the selected part. The selected part is presented using either performed data or staff notation. Users can better understand performance expression by visualizing the performance with expressive cues of qualitative mus... View full abstract»

    In this paper we propose a unified approach to content-based search in different kinds of music data. Our approach is based on a general algorithmic framework for searching patterns of complex objects in large databases. In particular we describe how this approach may be used to allow for polyphonic search in polyphonic scores as well as for the identification of PCM audio material. We give an ove...

    Personal Orchestra lets anybody conduct an electronic orchestra at a new level of realism: users interact not with a synthetic, but an original audio and video recording of a real orchestra - the Vienna Philharmonic. Nevertheless, they can interactively control not only volume and instrumentation, but also tempo of the orchestra, using natural conducting gestures. A gesture tracking and predicting...

    We propose an approach for extracting automatically time indexes of occurrences of percussive sounds in an audio signal taken from the popular music repertoire. The scheme is able to detect percussive sounds unknown a priori in a selective fashion. It is based on an analysis by synthesis technique, whereby the sound searched for is gradually synthesized from the signal itself. The possibility to e... View full abstract»

    Digital audio compression plays a major role in music distribution (Internet or music education), and MP3 has become a standard format of compression. The methodology of such a codec includes removal of ultrasonic sound, stereo changing and masking effects. Psychoacoustical perception of compressed music has been assessed in this statistical study.

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (301 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Different music information retrieval (MIR) techniques have been developed over time. This, in part is due to the fact that the variety of formats used to represent musical content creates the necessity of using specialized format-dependent algorithms. Nonetheless, techniques that are used in text information retrieval can be used as a starting point for the development of general systems that dea... View full abstract»

    Watermarking is a technique used to label digital media, to protect copyright ownership, by hiding information into the signal. Watermarks must be imperceptible and robust against attacks. Besides, watermark robustness against several signal processing techniques can be ensured by exploiting a technique related to spread spectrum communications. In this paper, we propose a procedure based on frequ... View full abstract»

    In this paper the capability of using self-organising neural maps (SOM) as music style classifiers from symbolic specifications of musical fragments is studied. From MIDI file sources, the monophonic melody track is extracted and cut into fragments of equal length. From these sequences, melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic numerical descriptors are computed and presented to the SOM. Their performance i... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (200 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Melody-based retrieval of music, which is one type of content-based retrieval, is proposed. Every fragment of a melody is represented as an appropriate N-dimensional vector, called a feature vector. A feature vector consists of values corresponding to intervals and rhythm of a melody. Depending on the distance between every fragment of a melody in the music database to the entered melody, k-neares... View full abstract»

  • Virtual Composer: a tool for musical composition

    Publication Year: 2002
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (248 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The idea for Virtual Composer (VC) grew from the master course of composition that has been held by the first author since 1998. The main aim of this software is to be a composing assistant: a composer chooses architecture of composition, language styles, musical system and "engines" for generation and "modelling" of pitches, duration and timbre. The approach is object orientated. In this way the ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (942 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper describes the design method of a WWW-based melody-retrieval system which takes a sung melody as a search clue and retrieves the music title from a music database of standard MIDI files (SMF) over the Internet. The most important issue in building a melody-retrieval system on the Internet is to achieve both high matching accuracy and quick search. It is, however, quite difficult to simul...

    Audio coding originally has been developed as a means for making digital radio possible and for distributing audio via phone lines. The most apparent application today is electronic distribution of music via the Internet. While legal services and copy protection methods have been around for seven years, the public attention and the bulk of actual use is still on unauthorized copying of music files...

  • Lossless audio coding with MPEG-4 structured audio

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):184 - 191
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (366 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    MPEG-4 structured audio (SA) has been proposed as a flexible standard for generalized audio coding. Originating out of Netsound software developed at MIT SA is based on MIDI-synthesis of sound, but it is enriched with DSP algorithms so as to allow emulation of other types of coders designed for speech and audio signals. We have investigated the use of structured audio for lossless coding of audio ... View full abstract»
