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.

ASyMMuS at Lorentz Center Leiden Workshop on Music Similarity

Several researchers from the ASyMMus and DML projects prominently contributed to the high-profile international workshop “Music Similarity: Concepts, Cognition and Computation“.

The workshop gathered experts on music similarity from Computer Science, Musicology, Music Psychology and related scientific fields. In a highly-motivated series of workgroups and talks, our researchers collaborated with other experts in the field in theoretical concepts and computer models of music similarity.

Main areas that were addressed :
* Relationship of similarity and categorisation
* Embedding similarity in context
* Perception and cognition of similarity
* Similarity modelling
* Similarity in music content – music analysis
* Similarity in music expression

Results include a roadmap for interdisciplinary music similarity research as well as future collaborations across scientific fields.
