Integrating Paper and Digital Music Information Systems
Active musicians generally rely on extensive personal paper-based music information retrieval systems containing scores, parts, compositions, and arrangements of published and hand-written music. Many have a bias against using computers to store, edit and retrieve music, and prefer to work in the paper domain rather than using digital documents, despite the flexibilityand powerful retrieval opportunities available. In this paper we propose a model of operation that blurs the boundaries between the paper and digital domains, offering musicians the best of both worlds. A survey of musicians identifies the problems and potential of working with digital tools, and we propose a system using colour printing and scanning technology that simplifies the process of moving music documents between the two domains. Keywords : user interfaces, user needs, optical music recognition
