Abstract:

  • ABSTRACT

    The field of computer music and “electronic music processing” has a unique and strained relationship to standardization and to (capital-S) Standards. On the one hand, there are very powerful and widely-accepted de-facto standards for several areas, such as real-time note-oriented music performance interchange protocol (MIDI), machine-readable music representations (DARMS, Music-V), printed representation of music (common-practise western music notation (CMN), PostScript), and audio storage media (CD digital and AES/EBU formats).
