Subject: retrieval tools for music, multimedia?

A colleague not on Humanist is attempting to make the case "that tools for
musical data-retrieval are urgently needed by the academic and commercial
communities (everything from scholarly thematic catalogues to copyright
infringement control, etc, etc)." He notes that anecdotal evidence is not
lacking but needs "a reference to some authoritative statement that there
is a lack of useful content-based search and data-retrieval tools for
music (or for multimedia in general)."

Does anyone on Humanist know of such a statement? Please reply to the group.

Many thanks.
