An XML-based Web Interface to Present and Analyze the Music Aspect of Dance
The present work describes a Web interface aiming at the advanced fruition of music content. This browser application, already available on the Internet, adopts the international standard known as IEEE 1599 to encode music information in XML format. The paper explores a specific goal of the framework, namely the representation of music and dance simultaneously. The key issues are two: offering the user an experience of dance performances based on a great variety of materials, and providing the dance student with an educational tool. The paper will provide a basic overview of the IEEE 1599 standard and will present a clarifying example from a ballet.
