  2. 2. SALAMI Objectives<br />SALAMI == Structural Analysis of Large amounts of Music Information<br />Musical analysis has traditionally been conducted by individuals and on a small scale<br />Computational approach, combined with the huge volume of data now available, will <br />Deliver substantive corpus of musical analyses in common framework for music scholarsand students<br />Establish a methodology and tooling so that community can sustain and enhance this resource<br /><br />
  3. 3. Motivation<br />A resource of this size empowers musicologists to approach their work in a new and different way, starting with the data, and to ask research questions that have not been possible before<br />The analysis is useful in classifying different genres of music and can be used to compare different styles of composition within a composer’s works or between composers<br />It can also be used to understand historical influences over time and location<br />
