  5. 5. Collection Metadata Conversion/publication of raw metadata as RDF Publication as Linked Data with rationalised identifiers Alignment with external sources SPARQL/pubby access Music Ontology,Event Ontology,Similarity Ontology, SKOS,VoID
  6. 6. Computational Analysis/Feature Metadata Audio analysis of tracks: chromagrams,chord,tempo, key,structural segmentation etc. Separation of analysis metadata and provenance from analysis results Feature data stored as a“blob” Access via direct download PROV,VAMP,Audio Feature Ontology/Vocabulary
  7. 7. Exploratory Analysis Exploratory analysis tools and workflows Typicality of key Initial workset based on metadata Results of key typicality used for metadata validation
  8. 8. Discussion Two differing,but complementary purposes etree: bibliographic metadata calma: audio analysis Integration of audio feature analysis and bibliographic metadata to support navigation and retrieval
  9. 9. Discussion Software/analysis focused on a single investigation might be cheaper But we get the potential to reuse,expand and transparency of method CALMA dataset builds on the existing etree collection It's a fun dataset to play with!
