Workshop on "Editorial Technologies for Music and Multimedia" organized with the support of Musicnetwork.

Funded by the European Commission, the Musicnetwork has been established in order to help bring music into the interactive multimedia era. It's a "Centre of Excellence" to bring the music industry, content providers and research institutions together. The Musicnetwork draws on the assets and mutual interests of these actors to exploit the potential of new technologies, tools, products, formats and models.

-  Date : Thursday, October 16th, 2003, 9:30am-5:30pm
-  Venue : Ircam, Studio 5
-  Access conditions : Free entrance

Conferences exclusively in english.


Hypermedia musical publication requires a number of special competences, due to the lack of an integrated environment dedicated to the special needs of the musicologist.

The modelling of the musical database at the basis of the editorial project is particularly important. The database must permit indexation and retrieval on metadata as well as on musical content. Modelling must be compliant with musical knowledge. The database must also permit adaptation of musical content and cooperative work, and must open perspectives in musical e-learning.

The musical representation space must be investigated. Acoustic representations such as sonogram or spectrogram have introduced new ways of representations of musical events and contents, and new ways of exploration and description of the musical phenomenon. Electro-acoustic music needs special representation, specially concerning time, and ethnomusicology requires at least an enhancement of common western music notation. Even common music notation is not easy to integrate in multimedia presentations.

Finally, a number of technical competences are needed for the final diffusion of the work. There is a lack of tools dedicated to synchronisation, which is a basic need for every musical multimedia presentation. Standards and technologies are perpetually evolving, and authoring tools are ever more and more complex. Rendering (MIDI or audio rendering) requires particular competences.

The workshop will try to investigate main issues related to these topics, and open new perspectives and solutions.
