In this demo, we explore the potential of RDF as a representation format for digital music. Digital music is broadly used today in many professional music production environments. For decades, MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) has been the standard for digital music exchange between musicians and devices, albeit not in a Web friendly way. We show the potential of expressing digital music as Linked Data, using our midi2rdf suite of tools to convert and stream digital music in MIDI format to RDF. The conversion allows for lossless round tripping: we can reconstruct a MIDI file identical to the original using its RDF representation. The streaming uses an existing, novel generative audio matching algorithm that we use to broadcast, with very low latency, RDF triples of MIDI events coming from arbitrary analog instruments.
