Abstract (EN)We propose a new watermarking method that hides the writer’s identity into symbolic musical scores featuring ﬁngering annotations. These annotations constitute a valuable part of the symbolic representation, yet they can be slightly modiﬁed without altering the quality of the musical information. The method applies a controlled distortion of the existing ﬁngerings so that unauthorized copies can be identiﬁed. The proposed watermarking method is robust against attacks like random ﬁngering alterations and score cropping, and its detection does not require the original ﬁngering, but only the suspect one. The method is general and applies to various ﬁngering contexts and instruments.
