Early Music & Modern Technologies: Developments in Digital Musicology

Activity: Talk or presentationAcademic


Similar to other disciplines in the Humanities, Musicology has engaged with the digital, resulting in (informal) sub-disciplinary labels like 'Digital Musicolgy' and 'Computational Musicology'. This presentation focuses on the application of digital and computational tools to polyphonic music from the Renaissance - roughly the period between 1430 and 1600. After a brief introduction on music of this particular period, projects and initiatives dealing with different types of digital content (e.g. images, metadata, encoded notation) will be discussed.
