Towards Multimedia Annotation of Musical Information
From musical-instrument training to musicological analysis, passing by rehearsal situations, score notation practices are innumerable and their logic varies from one case to another. Annotating a score is not a trivial matter: it is suggesting a certain way of reading and listening. An outcome of musicology studies on the different functions of musical annotation, the MusiqueLab Annotation software enables the user to create annotations on a given graphical and temporal support – notably an image of a score synchronized to its corresponding file. A few of this software program's distinctive features will be presented along with the musical possibilities it offers in the educational arena.
