Polifonia: a digital harmoniser for musical heritage knowledge

Project description

Playing the soundtrack of our history

How are music, people, places and events from the 17th century connected with our lives today? To highlight the evolution of European musical heritage in space and time, the EU-funded Polifonia project will develop tools to create a vast resource of computational knowledge from musical heritage sources. Themes covered include the transition of music genres across borders, the experiences of music in childhood, and the tracing of musical ideas through musicians’ encounters in history. Ten pilots - spanning topics such as historical bells and organ heritage, to classification of polyphonic notated music - will drive the development of the project's digital ecosystem through a continuous validation of technologies.
