    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»

    Summary form only given. A modern approach to music and musical education devoted to children and boys (and also adults) should be, first based on real experimentations and/or computer simulations concerning the physics of sound, both acoustic and psychoacoustic. Due to the wide availability of personal computers and Internet technological advances, it is possible to draw children's attention to f... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces the NEUMES Project from a top-down perspective. The purpose of the project is to design a software infrastructure for digital transcription of medieval chant manuscripts, such that transcriptions can be interoperable across many types of applications programs. Existing software for modern music does not provide an effective solution. A distributed library of chant document re... View full abstract»

    The music scores of the 18th century and earlier were produced only in a manual way. The important problem of the current registration of old historical music scores lies in the identification of the corresponding writer to estimate who did the notation writing or drawing. We are developing efficient identification of a writer's hand. This identification is based on the automated image analysis ap... 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»

    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»

  • 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»

    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»

    In this paper we describe "The Public Sound Objects" project and its context. This project, which is currently under development, approaches Internet collaborative music performance, going beyond most common paradigms where the network is mainly used as a channel to provide a connection between performative spaces. The system will provide an on-line public performance space where people can be fou... 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»

  • 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»

  • Developing traditions of music notation and performance on the Web

    Publication Year: 2002
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1335 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    High level symbolic music notations and performance practices are all related to particular cultural traditions. For example, Gregorian Chant, Elizabethan Lute music, 19th century Romantic, and 20th century Avant-Garde musics all relate to different philosophies of space and time. A universal standard for music notation or its performance is therefore neither possible nor desirable. The Web should... View full abstract»

    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»

    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...

    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»

    Digital watermarking is an active research area that has received a considerable attention in multimedia applications. For most watermark applications, it is often desired to retrieve the embedded information without access to the host data, which is known as blind watermark. Most previous blind watermark schemes either suffer significantly from host data interference or require expense of storage... View full abstract»
