Summary of the project:

The HISPAMUS proposal aims at valorizing the Hispanic music heritage from the 15th to the 19th centuries, by exploiting the digital resources of music collections. In addition, we have access to thousands of oral tradition melodies that were compiled by folklorists in the 1950s decade and are digitised as images, without the current possibility of content-based search or study. It is necessary to develop services and tools for the benefit of archives/libraries, scholars, computer scientists and general public.

HISPAMUS will try to provide smart access to archival manuscripts of music scores, allowing its reuse and exploitation. In order to reach this ambitious goal, our group can provide cutting-edge technology in the fields of Machine Learning, Pattern Recognition, and Optical Music Recognition. The proposal could generate the software tools needed to convert manuscript score images to a modern digital format, like MEI/MusicXML, ready to render modern notation scores, readable by a contemporary musician, and allowing the public to enjoy and search into the digital contents of these works, either as a musicologist or as a musician.
