Introducing the LEMC: How to build an Early Music Research Infrastructure

Research output: Chapter in book/volumeContribution to conference proceedingsScientificpeer-review


This paper outlines a Research Infrastructure for the study of Early Music. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) of CERN serves as example for the building blocks needed. The paper discusses the elements of the proposed Large Early Music Collider (LEMC), including the requirements of encoded music, the availability of tools for music analysis, and the position of different types of libraries in the infrastructure. Where relevant initiatives in digital infrastructure and tools, in and outside of musicology, are introduced.
