Course File (syllabus or course advertisement)
Supplementary Description: This course introduces the subject of music informatics. The boundaries of this cross-disciplinary field are hard to define – broadly speaking, it includes most applications of computing technology to the study and performance of music. This course presents a collection of topics of current relevance to researchers in the field: analysis of music represented as audio (e.g. CDs and MP3s) or symbolically (e.g. MIDI files and sheet music), higher-order problems such as music recommendation, and finally music cognition. Students will prepare a final project on a topic of personal interest.
