Musicology in the Digital Age is a Study Day organised by the Musicological Society of Australia as a forum to reflect on the engagement between musicological research and digital technology. The aim of the event is to generate discussion about this burgeoning field of research and offer an opportunity for music scholars to gain insights into emerging digital research techniques and their applications to musicology.


The keynote address will be given by David De Roure, Professor of e-Research at University of Oxford.

Digital Musicology today and tomorrow

This talk will reflect on two projects in the digital musicology arena. The first is Transforming Musicology, a project exploring how software tools being developed by the music information retrieval community may be applied in a variety of areas of musical study. Secondly, the Fusing Audio and Semantic Technologies project focuses on music performance and production today. What should we be capturing today to support the musicology of tomorrow?


The Study Day will take place in the Io Myers Studio at the University of New South Wales on Saturday 14 October 2017.
