I am reposting this one.. and the authour knows it..
Dunno if this is the right forum .. but the contents of this post .. from the euromusicology list is interesting anyway
.---------------------------------------------------



I wanted to put out word about an interesting event I had the privilege of
attending this week at the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in
Los Angeles. This was a workshop of the Digital Media Project chaired by Dr.
Leonardo Chiariglione, the founder of MPEG, the purpose of which was to identify
traditional rights and usages of analogue media and then translate that to a
set of specifications needed for our newly digital world.

On the first day of this event, with representatives of many of the world's
leading digital media companies in attendance, I briefly demonstrated the
Virtual Conservatory's use of digital recorded excerpts in our Hearing Tonal Music
software for aural skills. As a result, I can take credit for at least four
"digital enabled usages" to be included in the Digital Media Project's
specifications:

1. Repurposing content

2. Extracting content to create new content

3. Assembling content to create new content

4. Synthesizing content

On the second day of the workshop, "digital media business models" of the
following four companies were considered in detail:

1. The Virtual Conservatory

2. BBC television

3. Japanese public television

4. Italian telecom

I found the forum to be fascinating, and I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to
see genius in efficacious action: Dr. Chiariglione and the other members of
this group were most impressive to watch. One can only hope that their
collective effort may soon lead to breaking the digital media stalemate, so that the
work of technology companies in bringing media to the masses in ways that have
not previously been possible will not be unduly impeded by legal and
logistical limitations. In our small way, the Virtual Conservatory is doing its part;
insofar as we succeed, music education will be the better for it. Of course,
this comes at a propitious time for us, with our Demo CD in the final production
stages and order-taking for our first product (to be released in time for the
2004-5 school year) just commenced.

To keep track of the Digital Media Project's progress (they expect to
complete their work in 2006), please visit their website:

Thanks.

Best, jrc
