Abstract:

This paper describes an XML-based format that allows an advanced fruition of music contents. Thanks to such format, namely MX (IEEE PAR1599), and to the implementation of ad hoc interfaces, users can enjoy music from different points of view: the same piece can be described through different scores, video and audio performances, mutually synchronized. The purpose of this paper is pointing out the basic concepts of our XML encoding and presenting the process required to create rich multimedia descriptions of a music piece in MX format. Finally, a working application to play and view MX files will be presented.
