Klaus Frieler & Frank Höger Weimar/Hamburg
Computational methods in jazz analysis allow, amongst others, to pepper up case studies by statistical descriptions and visualizations, to conduct large corpus studies or to search and mine for patterns of all sorts. This half-day workshop introduces into this amazing world of new opportunities by examples and hands-on exercises. We will use the MeloSpyGUI software and the Weimar Jazz Database, both developed during the Jazzomat Research Project as well as new web tools developed within the Dig That Lick project.
