Item Type: Monograph (Project Report)
Abstract: The main objective of the “Metadata Used in Semantic Indexes and Charts” (MUSIC) project is to facilitate musicological research in the area of popular music by bringing together an extensive database of popular music charts, already linked to academic publications, with open data found on the Semantic Web. Emerging Linked Data technologies enable the combination of several music related data sources. The effective fusion of these resources will enable innovative, to date unprecedented ways of navigating through the popular music space, enabling novel research to be carried out, while providing much sought-after use cases and new consumption patterns to the Linked Data and broader Semantic Web communities. The project aims to integrate these resources with the interfaces and analytical tools already provided by Academic Charts Online. The project will thus rely on, and bring value to multiple disciplines including musicology, Linked Data and Semantic Web development, user interface design, software development, and the broader field of music informatics and pedagogy.
