Proposal for a Performance Data Format,

Working Notes of IJCAI-03 Workshop on methods for automatic music performance and their applications in a public rendering contest (2003)

The paper discusses an interchange format for performance data and corpora. We compare the widely accepted XML-based formats for music notation, WEDELMUSIC XML and MusicXML. We propose adopting MusicXML as our interchange format and show an example using it. Last, we suggest a small change to MusicXML for our purposes (MusicXML(4R)) and present a tool for generating MusicXML(4R).
