MIRAGE Symposium #1: Computational Musicology

The 1st MIRAGE Symposium took place on 8-9 June, 2021, but continues online: all videos are available and the discussion can continue on Slack. 

The symposium is organised in the context of the MIRAGE project (RITMO, in collaboration with the National Library of Norway's Digital Humanities Laboratory).

Symposium description

Computer technologies could potentially offer revolutionary tools to better understand and appreciate music. Although computer music research is a very active and productive area of research, algorithms are not yet able to comprehend the full richness of music. This symposium is an attempt to strengthen the dialogue between computer science and musicology, in both direction:

  • Presenting to musicologists a broad range of research in computational musicology, in a way that should be accessible to them.
  • Collecting from musicologists their particular needs, with the aim to shape computational musicology research along those lines.

The symposium is organised within the context of the MIRAGE research project, actively working along the above-mentioned objectives.

Call for asynchronous participation

The "synchronous" event on June 8 and 9 has ended, but the symposium continues in an asynchronous way. You are welcome to watch the video recordings and participate on Slack. The list of projects presented during the symposium is far from representing an exhaustive depiction of the research panorama. Presentations of other projects and other research groups are highly welcome. Video, text or links will be added below, and dedicated channels added on the MIRAGE Slack. Just contact me if you would like to add your own contribution.
