This paper describes the first phase of a new experimental audiovisual system for studying prerecorded music and theater performances on a scientific way. The aim of this multimedia program is to serve as a tool for encouraging artistic research in the field of Music and Theater interpretation. This is the first result of an investigation about the needs of the researchers of the PhD programme in Music at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia. We have previously discussed the requirements of the practice based research, focusing on the contents and main tendencies in the field of Music. We would like to share and discuss the development of this video/software application with our colleagues of the international academic group MIDAS (Music Institutions with Doctoral Studies) and other non-European institutions.
