INFORMATICA APPLICATA ALLA MUSICA

Goffredo Haus

Goals

Providing the basics of coding and music processing, with particular reference to the most relevant application areas (Internet, multimedia databases, music archives, music publishing, sound synthesis, computer-aided music composition and musicology).

Program

Lessons (9 cfu)

  • Historical overview of music IT: evolution of knowledge, methods and technologies.
  • Formal description of music information. Representation levels. Multilayer description and interaction. Special languages (DARMS, MUSIC V, SMDL, NIFF).
  • Audio layer: linear codes; differential codes; lossless and lossy (MP3 & AAC) codes; audio & music features' recognition within audio signals.
  • Sound synthesis: sampling, mathematical and physical models.
  • Performance layer: the MIDI standard.
  • Symbolic layer: optical music recognition (OMR); music archives; music information querying and retrieval by contents; music electronic publishing; analysis and pattern recognition of scores; generative models.
  • Structural layer: processing and synthesis of symbolic information; Musical Petri Nets.
  • Multilayer information: MPEG4 SASL/SAOL, MPEG7, MPEG21, IEEE 1599.
  • Technologies for Digital Rights Management.

Lab (9 cfu)

  • Digital score editing – MuseScore;
  • Digital audio editing – Sony SoundForge;
  • Digital Audio Workstation and MIDI sequencing – Cockos Reaper;
  • Multilayer description of music information – IEEE 1599;
  • Models for the analysis/processing/synthesis of music information – music Petri nets.
