The University of Oxford

The University of Oxford is home to the Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music (DIAMM), an online database of all European polyphonic music sources before about 1600. During the course of this project, the archive will be expanded to include the photographic records of manuscripts of the Solesmes archive, comprising the majority of the world’s extant manuscripts containing monophonic Gregorian chants. Each image will be presented alongside metadata about the original manuscript source and the melodies and texts copied on each page. An API will be developed linking this data to other online databases referring to the same musical and liturgical content, ensuring consistency and avoiding duplication. Improvements to the online image viewer will be made, allowing visualisation of multiple versions of the image (e.g. negative, positive, enhanced contrast, etc). The staff of the university will also contribute to the cataloguing efforts of 128,000 of the approximately 2 million chants present in the archive. Dr Julia Craig-McFeely, director of DIAMM, says, “There is often a division between polyphony and chant in musicological research and resources, despite the fact that the majority of early polyphonic sacred music was derived from (and quotes) chant models. The REPERTORIUM project will allow us to link polyphony directly with its chant models. DIAMM is also a partner and collaborator in the Cantus Index database; by linking our datasets, DIAMM can enrich its image-delivery environment with the extensive research of the Cantus team while sharing image content with Cantus.”

The Polytechnic University of Milan (Politecnico di Milano) is the largest technical university in Italy, offering undergraduate, graduate and higher education courses in engineering, architecture and design. Founded in 1863, it is the oldest university in Milan. The Image and Sound Processing Group (ISPG) was established in 1993 by Prof. Augusto Sarti and Prof. Stefano Tubaro. Three laboratories are part of the ISPG: the ISP Laboratory in Milan, the Sound and Music Computing Lab and the Musical Acoustics Lab. ISPG will develop methodologies for sound field reconstruction that will power Repertorium’s immersive streaming solution. This will allow users to freely navigate the virtual sound stage and become fully immersed when selecting among 360° video hotspots. This technology will be tested on two classical orchestra concerts. The solution will allow users the possibility of isolating or muting instruments in the orchestra of their choice, for example, to “listen in” on a particular part or mute it to rehearse in its place. Prof. Fabio Antonacci will coordinate the activities of the ISPG in the Repertorium project. Fabio Antoacci says, “We are very excited about taking part in the Repertorium project, which represents a breakthrough in the technology for streaming, giving everyone the possibility to take part in a concert in an immersive fashion”.

Instituto Complutense de Ciencias Musicales (ICCMU)

The Instituto Complutense de Ciencias Musicales (ICCMU) is a university centre attached to the Universidad Complutense de Madrid whose purpose is to promote scientific research, as well as the recovery and dissemination of musical heritage and specialised teaching.

ICCMU was the recipient of funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme for the DIDONE Project (grant agreement no. 788986), whose scope is to use big data analysis to map emotions in 18th-century Italian opera by analysing all the arias composed on texts by the librettist Pietro Metastasio (1698-1782). This corpus contains a comprehensive catalogue of emotions in music, a unique window of opportunity to scrutinise conventions that defined music expression and meaning for over a century. This required transcribing into digital computer-readable format thousands of handwritten scores, a process which is ongoing. ICCMU will contribute to Repertorium by furnishing the corpus of thousands of already transcribed scores to train AI optical music recognition for handwritten classical notation and will benefit from the project by using this technology to increase the digitisation effort of 18th-century arias.

ICCMU oversees the cataloguing of the Solesmes archive. 128.000 chants will be manually catalogued, and the rest will be matched with existing online catalogues or with concordances among the manually catalogued chants in the Solesmes archive using AI-based music information retrieval techniques. An opera will be staged by the Nereydas Orchestra in Spain, featuring music whose scores are prepared using the project’s technology.

Tampere University

Tampere University is one of the most multidisciplinary universities in Finland, bringing together research and education in technology, health and society. The university is known for its excellence in teaching and research, and it collaborates with hundreds of universities and organisations worldwide. Tuomas Virtanen leads the Audio Research Group, responsible for internationally renowned research in audio, speech, and music signal processing, focusing on content analysis of sounds, spatial audio, and source separation and signal enhancement. Their expertise in signal processing and machine learning algorithms will contribute to Repertorium’s objectives of creating real-time sound source separation tools that will underlie the immersive streaming solution. Realising these technologies for classical music signifies a giant leap in the field, and the resulting algorithms are likely to become core technology for many uses. One challenge for this area of research was the lack of appropriate training data for the AI models, something provided through this project. Tuomas Virtanen says, “It is really exciting to be able to develop source separation algorithms using the realistic classical music recordings professionally produced in the project. Material like this hasn’t existed before the project, and therefore, the results will be very interesting, both scientifically but also in practice.”

University of Alicante

The University of Alicante was created in October 1979 on the structure of the University Study Centre (CEU), which was started in 1968. It offers a full range of courses with more than 40 undergraduate degrees and 50 official master’s and doctoral degrees. The university’s Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence Group is responsible for building Deep Learning models that will power Repertorium’s optical music recognition toolkits for medieval and classical musical notations. They provide a disruptive technology based on Artificial Intelligence that enables machines to read music scores. In the context of Repertorium, this is a great challenge because the machine does not only have to understand the music notation but also the lyrics to automatically interpret how they should be sung. Their years of extensive research in this field can finally contribute to the EU’s goals of preserving and promoting European cultural heritage.

Dominique Crochu

Dominique Crochu is a medievalist, fellow liturgical connoisseur and co-director of the Musique Médiévale network. He began working with monks of Solesmes in 1980, where he learnt semiology at the musical Paleography workshop. He soon specialised in not yet published Old Font Gregorian repertory, especially the Office of Matins, for which, after the French Revolution, the habit was taken to recite instead of sing. His research allowed a decisive advance concerning the very delicate problem of the interpretation of B flat in Gregorian chant. He has collaborated, since 2005, with Dominique Gatté. Together, they have listed more than 8000 manuscripts and printed sources from the fifth to the eighteenth century. He also worked with Alberto Diaz-Blanco to digitalise and restore more than one thousand Gregorian vinylic, shellac and magnetic supports.
