Computer-aided musicology - approaches and opportunities


Computer-aided musicology - approaches and opportunities José Nuno Oliveira Department of Informatics, University of Minho, Braga, Portugal In 2012 researchers of INESC TEC and the University of Minho launched WikiScore (http://www.wiki-score.org/), a web-based platform for cooperative transcription of large-scale music scores, with the main aim of recovering lost music heritage. By using an open-source notation easy to understand and parse, Wikiscore and other similar repositories, notably Mutopia, create new opportunities for music analysis and computer-aided musicology. Not only can one resort to data science techniques but also to „algebraic“ approaches based on music combinators and their properties. This talk will address these topics and how they are introduced to students of the „Computing for musicology“ 2nd-year course of the music degree at Minho.
