A JXTA-based music information retrieval system
In this paper, we present a JXTA-based system for contents-based music information retrieval. The system finds matching melodies from a set of XML documents that encode music contents. The XML documents are stored in a native XML database and XPath query language is used to extract the information about the structure of music data. The matching algorithm utilizes the geometric hashing technique [Wo97] by analyzing geometric properties of both XML documents and music contents. The system preprocesses extracted music contents and stores the information about melody patterns in a relational database. When a user sends a query about a melody, it searches melody patterns that have similar geometric properties as the query melody.
