Abstract or description

The proof of concept project MuTaTeD! validated the concept of integrating two existing music representation standards. SMDL (Standard Music Description Language) and NIFF (Notation Interchange File Format). An application with the combined implementation of these two standards, SMDL and NIFF, supports the representation of music as a time - structured entity in its own "gestalt" as it is conceived and yet provides a standard for high-quality display via the NIFF format. One of the most important results coming out of this first project was the first SMDL to NIFF converter, allowing NIFF compliant Notation Editors to display SMDL encoded music. Building on the results of this project, MuTaTeD'II has started in November 1999. Its aim is to design and implement a music information retrieval system with delivery/access services for encoded music. The prototype service will provide a user friendly, web-based search/browse/query interface to access musical content.
