We describe an information management system which addresses the needs of music analysis projects, providing a logic-based knowledge representation scheme for the many types of object in the domains of music and signal processing, including musical works and scores, performance events, human agents, signals, analysis functions, and analysis results. The system is implemented using logic-programming and semantic web technologies, and provides a shareable resource for use in a laboratory environment. The whole is driven from a Prolog command line, where the use of Matlab as a computational engine enables experiments to be designed and run with the results being automatically stored and indexed into the information structure. We present as a case-study an experiment in automatic music segmentation.
