A paper describing the relationships between Music Information Retrieval, Big Music Data, and musicology in relation to the analysis of recorded music and in particular the DML project was recently published at Musical Quarterly.
The paper, entitled “Big Music Data, Musicology, and the Study of Recorded Music: Three Case Studies” and authored by Stephen Cottrell (Professor of Music at City, University of London and Co-Investigator in the DML project), can be viewed by following the below link:

ASyMMuS Workshop on Audio-Symbolic Music Similarity Modelling
8 July 2015, 10:00 – 15:30
Foyle Suite, Centre for Conservation
The AHRC funded project on An Integrated Audio-Symbolic Model of Music Similarity (ASyMMuS) aims to integrate aspects of audio and symbolic representations, such as scores or MIDI data, in a joint model. By building on the Digital Music Lab structure, the project’s aim is to promote a data driven approach to music similarity. This workshop will bring together researchers with different approaches to promote discussions on what constitutes and what contributes to music similarity.
For more information on the workshop, including programme, registration, and venue information, please visit the workshop webpage.
The DML project will be presented at the “Numbers, Noises and Notes: Quantitative Data and Music Research” symposium, which takes place on Tuesday 16th June at The Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex.
During the symposium, Dr Tillman Weyde (PI for the DML project) will give a talk on “Analysing Big Music Data: Audio Transcription and Pitch Analysis of World and Traditional Music”.
