Franco-British project in partnership with the Care for the Future program (Arts & Humanities Research Council - United Kingdom)
DaCaRyH (Data science for the study of calypso-rhythm through history) is a collaboration of ethnomusicologists and archivists in France, and data scientists and composers in the UK. DaCaRyH has 3 objectives: 1) to enrich the domain of ethnomusicology by integrating data science and music information retrieval (MIR) methods into ethnomusicological archives and research practices; 2) to enrich the domains of data science and MIR by integrating ethnomusicological use cases into the practice of the research and development of intelligent systems; 3) to study the concept of musical style through a comparative diachronic analysis of a music corpus, and to transform the features extracted from the same corpus into new styles.
