Multi-Model Music Content Description and Retrieval Using IEEE 1599 XML Standard

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The new format IEEE 1599 for music and audio content description defines a standard for the representation of retrieval models within music and music/audio formats that makes use of XML documents as content descriptors. This paper described how music/audio semantics can be actually represented within the Structural Layer of IEEE 1599, thanks to the introduction of novel Music Information Retrieval (MIR) objects that can be exploited by music search engines. A complete description of MIR objects is provided and it is shown how they can be used to embed metadata relative to specific music retrieval models, thus allowing for the description of music content in different retrieval contexts.
