NEW FRONTIERS IN MUSIC EDUCATION THROUGH THE IEEE 1599 STANDARD

Adriano Baratè, Luca A. Ludovico

Abstract

IEEE 1599 is an international standard conceived for a comprehensive description of music. Inside a unique XML document, all the data and meta-data related to a single music piece can be coded, ranging from catalogue to structural, from notational to performance, from audio to graphic information. This format is particularly fit for computer-supported music education, since it allows a number of applications such as evolved score following, real-time comparison among different performances, studies on score transcriptions, musicological analyses, etc. After describing the key features of the standard, a number of case studies will be presented in order to demonstrate its applicability to music education.
