Abstract

MX is a new XML-based format to describe comprehensively heterogeneous music contents. In a single MX file, music symbols, printed scores, audio tracks, computer-driven performances, catalogue metadata, text and graphic contents related to a single music piece are linked and mutually synchronised within the same framework. Heterogeneous contents are organised in a multilayered structure that supports different encoding formats and a number of digital objects for each layer.
