In music information retrieval, query by example and automated source separation are two major problems. This paper describes the challenges inherent in musical query by examnple and describes systems that take very different approaches to the problem. Approaches to source separation in a musical context are outlined, again focusing on systems that take distinct approaches to the problem. Finally, future directions for DSP research are presented in the context of music information retrieval.
