Music Information Retrieval (MIR) is a fundamentally interdisciplinary
field. Nonetheless, a number of presentations at previous ISMIR
conferences have noted that there are some fields to which MIR
seems to have a natural connection but with which there have been
relatively fewer collaborations. Musicology is one of the most
commonly cited fields where there are good opportunities for more
interaction with MIR, and this paper presents four examples of
using fundamental MIR concepts and software tools (the MIR and
MIDI toolboxes) to start such collaborations. The four examples
cover a wide range of musicological periods, from religious chant
to 20th-century pop music, and also a wide range of MIR
techniques, from concepts based on symbolic data to audio-only
methods that avoid the concept of a musical score altogether. We
hope that other researchers may extend or adapt our examples to
answer their own musicological questions and foster their own
collaborations between MIR and musicology.
