IEEE Recommended Practice for Defining a Commonly Acceptable Musical Application Using XML

This recommended practice develops an XML application defining a standard language for symbolic music representation. The language is a meta-representation of music information for describing and processing said music information within a multi-layered environment, for achieving integration among structural, score, Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI), and digital sound levels of representation. Furthermore, the recommended practice integrates music representation with already defined and accepted common standards. This recommended practice will be accepted by any kind of software dealing with music information, e.g., score editing, optical music recognition (OMR) systems, music performance, musical databases, and composition and musicological applications.
