Examples from “the Uithof” (Computer Sciences)
Music is an important theme at Utrecht. Projects range from The hooked game, a game that looks into the catchiness of music, to The Dutch song bank, a musical database for Dutch folk songs which allows users to search by means of a melody. The database itself was developed at the Meertens Institute, but the ‘melody search engine’ was created in collaboration with Utrecht University. Similarly, RISM search
contains about a million items documenting musical sources, while TmiWeb offers a collection of sixteenth and seventeenth-century Italian music treatises. On another level, Time capsule is a query machine providing insight in pharmaceutical heritage.
