Digital Music Lab – Analysing Big Music Data is an AHRC project funded under the Big Data call of the Digital Transformations in the Arts and Humanities Theme. Our goal is to develop research methods and software infrastructure for exploring and analysing large-scale music collections, and to provide researchers and users with datasets and computational tools to analyse music audio, scores and metadata.

The £560k project (AH/L01016X/1) is being carried out collaboratively between City University London, Queen Mary University of London, University College London, and the British Library.

The ASyMMus project and its integration into the DML web interface were presented by Daniel Wolff during his departmental talk on music similarity.

From the abstract:
The concept of similarity can be applied to music in a multitude of ways. Applications include systems which provide similarity estimates depending on the specific user and context as well as analysis tools that show similarity of music with regards to specified compositional, physical or contextual features. The ASyMMuS project allows musicologists to apply similarity analysis to musical corpora on a big-data infrastructure – allowing for a comparison of e.g. the works of a certain composer.
