Welcome to ‘Scores of Scores’: an event with a difference that combines elements of a conference, workshop, hackathon, and ‘encodathon’.

The unusual format is designed to bring academia, industry, and the public together in order to connect people, promote a lively dialogue, and set the future direction for musical corpus creation and uses.

Everyone is welcome, and the event is free, though spaces are limited and registration is essential.

 

Schedule:
