I’m currently organizing the “1ST WORKSHOP ON DISTRIBUTED ETHNOMUSICOLOGY DATA AND MUSIC INFORMATION RETRIVAL” at Mahidol University in Bangkok. This project is funded by the ASEA-Uninet and a collaboration between the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, the Technical University Vienna and the Mahidol University Bangkok. You can find more information here.

The workshop will be held at the Mahidol University - Bangkok between the 28.1 – 30.1.2019.


This workshop aims to examine the current situation of data sets in ethnomusicology towards the development of standardized ways for data storage and data access between partner organizations. To this end, we plan to form an initial alliance that collects the requirements for an interoperable data infrastructure for digital musicology projects and builds first examples of tentative applications by means of automatic content and metadata analysis.

The aim of the workshop is to identify common interests, resources to contribute and common goals. Presentations and discussions will be accompanied by practical implementation and exchange sessions, facilitating rapid prototyping, technology transfer, and establishment of research collaborations.
