The AHRC funded Unlocking Musicology project has applied novel methods and tools across a wealth of digital music and music-related data. This data includes live performances, audio recordings, musical scores, catalogue records, and scanned images - and can often be apparently incompatible, incomplete, and sometimes even incorrect. Yet within this data is a wealth of musical experience and knowledge, waiting to be unlocked. How can we use digital tools to create narratives through this data to better access, explore, and understand the musical information within? Working with partners from across the cultural heritage sector, the Unlocking Musicology project has been investigating these questions and will present its results at this informal public event.
We welcome all those working with digital cultural heritage data to join us for a day of exploration and discussion about Linked Art on the 1st October 2019, hosted by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
