AbstractComputer users are gaining access to and are starting to accumulate moderately large collections of multimedia files, in particular of audio content, and therefore demand new applications and systems capable of effectively retrieving and manipulating these multimedia objects. Content-based retrieval of multimedia files is typically based on searching within a feature space, defined as a collection of parameters that have been extracted from the content and which describe it in a relevant way for that particular retrieval application. The MPEG-7 standard offers tools to model these metadata in an interoperable and extensible way, and can therefore be considered as a framework for building content-based audio retrieval systems. This paper highlights the most relevant aspects considered during the design and implementation of a DBMS-driven MPEG-7 layer on top of which a content-based music retrieval system has been built. A particular focus is set on the data modeling and database architechture issues.
