  • 1. IEEE 1599: Music Encoding andInteraction
    Original Article By
    Denis Baggi
    University for Applied Science of Southern Switzerland
    University of Milan, Italy
    Presented by

  • 2. What is IEEE 1599
    IEEE 1599 is a new standard to encode Multilayer music with XML symbols, was proposed to the IEEE Standards Association in 2001.
    IEEE  1599  is  the  result  of  the  research  efforts  of  the  IEEE  Standards AssociationWorking Group  on ʺMusic Application  of  XMLʺ. The work has been endorsed by the  international research program Intelligent  Manufacturing  Systems.
  • 3. Basic Features
    Two features distinguish IEEE 1599 from any other standard or encoding
    • The encoding is in the form of symbols that can be read both by machines and humans.
    • 4. It allows the realization of applications in which all aspects of music, such as audio and sound, graphical representation, historical data, performance indications, represented by the new concept of layers, are fully integrated, synchronized.
  • Different Layers
    General Layer
    music‐related metadata, i.e. catalogue information about the piece
    Logic Layer
    Contains symbolic contents, as well as the Spine, with Logically Organized Symbols (LOS)
    Structural Layer
    Identification of music objects and their  mutual relationships 
  • 5. Different Layers
    Notational Layer
    Graphical representations of the score
    Performance Layer
    Computer‐based descriptions and executions of music according to performance languages
    Audio Layer
    Digital or digitized recordings of the piece
  • 6. Different Layers
    • General
    Il mio ben quando verrà
    Nina o sia la pazza per amore by G. Paisiello
  • Interaction of Layers
  • 11. General Structure
    A generic IEEE 1599 document presents an XML structure similar to the one shown below
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE ieee1599 SYSTEM "">
  • 12. What is spine
    The spine is a sort of glue needed in a multi-layer framework. In this approach, heterogeneous descriptions of the same music piece are not simply linked together
    <event id="e1" timing="0" hpos="0"/>
    <event id="e2" timing="2" hpos="2"/>
    <event id="e3" timing="2" hpos="2"/>
    <event id="e4" timing="1" hpos="1"/>
    <event id="e5" timing="1" hpos="1"/>
  • 13. How spine binds
    <event id="e5“... />
  • 14. Application of IEEE 1599
    Multilayer music composition
    Composing Jazz & Blues chords
    Embedding Audio & Instrumental chords
    More interactive Music composition using image & video clips
  • 15. Application using IEEE 1599
  • 16. Application using IEEE 1599
  • 17. conclusion
    IEEE 1599 introduces a new era of music encoding technology in which music is not only the recorded audio to listen. Its further implementation improves the experience of Music Enthusiast.
