Structuring Music through Markup Language

Book Description

Although there have been two main perspectives on the nature of music through systematic and cultural musicology, music informatics has emerged as an interdisciplinary research area which provides a different idea on the nature of music through computer technologies. Structuring Music through Markup Language: Designs and Architectures offers a different approach to music by focusing on the information organization and the development of XML-based language. This book aims to offer a new set of tools on for practical implementations and a new investigation into the theory of music.
