Bringing sheet music into the Digital Era via Artificial Intelligence

Project description

Artificial intelligence to digitalise sheet music

Music has traditionally been preserved as written or sheet music. The preservation of audio recordings has evolved from non-digital (vinyl discs and cassettes) to digital mediums (CDs, MP3 formatting and streaming) enabling new technological possibilities to emerge. However, sheet music remained static, preserved only on paper or as paper-scan files. The EIC project Enote will improve sheet music from paper and pdf scans to native digital content to apply modern-day technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and big data to solve critical issues of contemporary musicians. The project is developing an application for mobile devices and smartphones that will allow musicians access to a comprehensive library of native digital sheet music with AI functionalities.

Objective

"Since the ancient Greeks musical text has been preserved as written or ""sheet music"". In the last 100 years preservation of audio recordings has evolved from non-digital (vinyl discs, cassettes) to digital mediums (CDs, MP3 & streaming) with new technological possibilities as consequence. Sheet music remained static: It is mostly available on paper or as paper-scan-files. Enote sets out to evolve sheet music from paper and pdf-scans to native digital content in order to be able to apply modern-day technologies such as artificial intelligence and big data for solving key issues of modern-day musicians.
Enote is developing an application for tablets and smartphones which for the first time in history will give musicians access to a comprehensive library of native-digital sheet music including artificial intelligence functionalities. This allows for ground-breaking features solving core problems of “static” sheet music itself and the limited possibilities of interaction that come with it."
