We wrote about this is a previous post and also presented our work at the Music Encoding Conference (MEC) last year.

The ECOLM project (An Electronic Corpus of Lute Music) has so far enjoyed three phases of development during which an encoding method for lute tablature, TabCode, has been devised, a large corpus of sources has been encoded, and experiments have been carried out using optical music recognition and crowd-sourced corrections.
