- MeTAMuSE is a collaborative project between the Universities of Indiana and London to develop:
MeTAMuSE will also build a test corpus of a representative sample of rights-free musical data to demonstrate the capabilities of the approach, and will make this test corpus publicly available.
MeTAMuSE has been awarded funding for two years (July 2006-August 2008) under the Scholarly Communications program of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, U.S.A.
- Improved Optical Music Recognition technology to facilitate the transfer of musical data from paper-based score to computer-based encoding;
- Methodologies for the design, management and curation of computer-based corpora of music;
- Music Knowledge Representation technology allowing the computer-based storage and detailed hierarchical annotation of musicological commentary, metadata and structural information about a digital corpus of music.
