    Besides audio fingerprinting techniques there are no essential procedures for a content-based identification of music audio available. But even these techniques rely heavily on statistical information of audio and do not consider any semantics of music. Furthermore, they require each piece of music to be pre-recorded and thus pre-processed for a successful identification. We try to apply the leads... View full abstract»

    The goal of this paper is to sketch the value chain and the business models of the online distribution of music. The perspective of the online digital music market is rather deceiving but the opportunities seem to remain high. Considering the rise of the P2P networks of free music digital files, it seems reasonable to assume this new way to distribute music meets consumer needs. Based on a review ... View full abstract»

    We present a method for hierarchical music clustering, based on compression of strings that represent the music pieces. The method uses no background knowledge about music whatsoever: it is completely general and can, without change, be used in different areas like linguistic classification, literature, and genomics. Indeed, it can be used to simultaneously cluster objects from completely differen... View full abstract»

    By building on recognised design for all methodologies, systems should be constructed in such a way that the mainstream solution should be easily adaptable and extensible to add functionality for niche markets. Accessibility can be considered to be an interplay of various processing domains. These processing domains relate to processes in production and perception of musical material. Through clea...

    Although MPEG-21 has the power to become the underlying protocol for content creation and content exchange applications, obstacles can be identified, which might impede its potential powerful position. These obstacles would result from an incomplete set of requirements if not all relevant use cases are considered thoroughly. Additionally, potential users might not be aware of the possibilities pro... View full abstract»

    Internet has undoubtedly changed the prerequisites for global music distribution once for all. After years of skepticism, clinging to old business models and pirate hunt on P2P networks, the record industry has reluctantly begun to embrace the new channel for marketing and distribution of cultural content. But what do we know about music consumption on P2P networks? Does it coincide with the varie... View full abstract»

    We discuss a new method of distributed jam session over network by employing the style of club DJ performance. DJ's are music performers, and they construct a music piece by combining materials prepared beforehand one by one. As a result, two and more DJ's join to complete a musical content in a session by the fusion of individual materials. Usual Internet streaming systems with client/server arch... View full abstract»

    Musical imaging is a recent trend in visualizing "hidden" dimensions of one-dimensional audio signals. The ascription of colors to psychoacoustic phenomena is consistent to the music perception depicted in the variety of scales and styles of ethnic music. Audio tools based on software engineering techniques are built for visualizing the chrominance of global music. This work presents MEL-IRIS, an ... View full abstract»

    Two main rights expression languages (RELs) exist to describe licenses governing the access to digital multimedia content: MPEG-21 REL and ODRL (open digital rights language). Both RELs are powerful and complex enough. The use of different RELs could divide the network commerce in two separate factions. We propose a way for interworking between them. They have many similarities that permit to tran... View full abstract»

    Content-based audio processing researchers need audio and its related metadata to develop and test algorithms. We present a common repository of audio, metadata, ontologies and algorithms. We detail the hardware implementation, in the form of massive storage and computation cluster, the software and databases design and the ontology management of the current system. The repository, as far as copyr... View full abstract»

    The modern audio compression techniques and increased bandwidth in the Internet has dramatically changed the music industry. Music in the 19th century was a service. In the 20th century music became an industrial product. In the 21st century music will be a service again. Illegal sharing services like KaZaA are widely spread. Legal online music services like iTunes from Apple or Napster 2 from Rox... View full abstract»

    We present an architecture that provides semantic Web annotations of sound clips described by MPEG-7 audio descriptions. The great flexibility of the MPEG-7 standard makes especially difficult to compare descriptions coming from heterogeneous sources. To cope with this, the architecture would first obtain "normalized" versions of the audio descriptions using different adaptation techniques. Once i... View full abstract»

    Integration of music notation in multimedia frameworks, and particularly in MPEG, could open new ways of valorization for that important part of our cultural heritage that is known as "music notation". Integration of music notation with multimedia content could also increase the distribution and diffusion of music notation. Moreover, integration with video, interactivity, digital rights management... View full abstract»

    We present a technique for the canonicalization of MPEG-21 REL licenses based on the semantics of their elements. Although the representation format used in these licenses is XML, our canonicalization is not based on the canonical XML specification because it is concerned only with the syntactic level of XML, and we want to define a canonicalization that produces the same result for all licenses t...

    When using a discrete wavelet transform or a wavelet packet for obtaining a sparse representation of music-signals the first question that arises is which wavelet filter/mother wavelet to use. The sparseness is a measure of how fast the DWT coefficients decay, and we are interested in obtaining a representation where the energy of the signal is concentrated in a few of the DWT coefficients. It is ... View full abstract»

    Contemporary systems for distribution of electronic media content and its respective licenses are limited in a way that neither the consumers nor the vendors can operate in a reliable and flexible way. Further, the security architecture that comprises these systems is based and literally mapped upon them from security architectures, which apply to distributed systems based on computer terminals an...

    Digital rights management is a key issue in music distribution throughout the Web. The authorization model is an important concept in DRM because it is used by any implementation which makes an authorization decision, for example when trying to decide if a user can exercise an action over a music album or a track. We present in this paper an implementation for the authorization model defined by th... View full abstract»
