Sometimes referred to as Computational Musicology, Digital Musicology has been defined as the study of music with computational modeling and simulation, or musicologically relevant research using quantitative and computational methodologies. Examples take on a variety of forms and styles, not limited to digital editions, sound archives, computational analysis, etc. Project types include creating copora of digital collections, corpus-specific research, development of digital tools and encoding standards, utilization of digital tools in composition, and using digital tools to inform, illuminate, or recreate performance practice.
