'Scores of Scores': Possibilities and Pitfalls with Musical Corpora
Mark Gotham, Ian Cross (Faculty of Music)
Michael Simmons (Cambridge Big Data)
Anne Alexander, John Rink (Cambridge Digital Humanities)
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.
A major ‘Encodathon’ is taking place to ‘liberate’ a new corpus of Romantic Songs for release on OpenScore through their CC0 license. For more details see: https://fourscoreandmore.org/scores-of-scores/
