2016-05-17 15:45 From lutetab to frettab

By Richard Lewis

One of the data sources we're working with on Transforming Musicology is Tim's corpus of encoded lute music sources. In order to prepare this for use with some more contemporary toolchains for dealing with digitised music notation, we've previously worked on extended the Music Encoding Initiative (MEI) schema to allow for lute tablature. We wrote about this is a previous post and also presented our work at the Music Encoding Conference (MEC) last year.

2015-10-19 17:15 Digital Approaches to Early Music and Linked Music Hackathon

By Richard Lewis

Our partners at OeRC have recently been running a couple of mini-projects under the Semantic Media Network grant: Semantic Linking and Integration of Content, Knowledge and Metadata in Early Music (SLICKMEM) and Semantic Linking of BBC Radio (SLoBR). Both projects have a strong Linked Data remit, publishing a significant amount of new Linked Data to the Web. As they were drawing to a close, Kevin Page was keen to close them with a hack day at which the developer community could experiment with the data sources the projects have generated and enhanced.

2014-05-21 19:20 Customising MEI for lute tablature

By Richard Lewis

The Goldsmiths Computing team of Transforming Musicology holds a good deal of collected wisdom—and data—on encoding tablature sources for the lute. 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.

2014-04-07 17:22 EMO catalogue and images: Where to go from here (part 1)

By David Lewis

Tim has already discussed in a blog entry some of the treatment of our efforts to take the data provided by EMO, the Early Music Online project. In that post, Tim considers some of the issues relating to transcribing and comparing the musical content of the EMO images.

2013-11-22 15:15 EMO work-alignment using musical content

By Tim Crawford

Use the musical content recognised by Aruspix as a means of confirming the identity (or close similarity - another discussion ...) of works against both the internal collection (items already in EMO) and external resources such as the RISM OPAC.
