Metadata and the Audio Media Lifecycle

Document Thumbnail

As multimedia offers a range of physical and cyberspaces for audio materials, metadata becomes increasingly crucial to the longevity of audio materials. The aim of this paper is to focus on inclusion of metadata as part of the signal at the creative end of the audio signal life cycle, specifically as part of the recording stage. The inclusion of Metadata at this stage enables efficiencies of production, repurposing, and audio media information retrieval1 The integration of metadata with object creation will radically and sensibly expand the creative palette. We will show how including both descriptive and technical metadata increases the creative reach of the artist. The environments that call for the repurposing and reuse of audio media include recording studios, dubbing stages, music archives, music libraries, the home desktop, or the "Garage Cinema"2.
