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, though spaces are limited and registration is essential.



The broad format for the day is as follows:

Morning: Hackathon running parallel with taught workshops

Afternoon: Hackathon presentations and research talks


Speakers to include:

Michael Scott Cuthbert (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

Prof Tim Crawford (Goldsmiths University of London)



There is no registration fee to attend this event, however, registration before the deadline is ESSENTIAL.

Please Register HERE before Sunday 27th May 2018.



This event is jointly organised by the Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative, Cambridge Digital Humanities Network and the Faculty of Music.
