This paper describes a generic peer-to-peer architecture, called Alchemist, which provides a peer-to-peer overlay coupled with a data fusion workflow environment for the searching or discovery of distributed resources. The Alchemist is designed to be generic and can host a number of different peer-to-peer applications or other frameworks. We provide an example of how it can be applied to audio and visual searching by using the underlying toolkit to provide workflows for the manipulation of different kinds of audio and visual metadata. This data-fusion capability allows high-level search mechanisms to be built on top of the framework and in addition we demonstrate how other search applications from the scientific community can be implemented.
