Music 253/CS 275a "Symbolic Musical Information"
Stanford University (Winter 2021).

This music-information introduction surveys symbolic frameworks and methods for a wide range of applications. Areas covered include advanced notation systems, optical music recognition, data conversion and synchronization, and the internal structure of data files. The course is preparatory for Music 254/CS 275B (Computational Musical Analysis), which focuses on projects requiring a working knowledge of notation and familiarity with sound software.


Meeting times: Tuesday & Thursdays 12:30–1:50
Virtual Location (2021): Enrolled students will receive Zoom invitation
Slack channel: https://music253cs275.slack.com
Customary Location: Braun Music Building, Rooms 131, 128 (lab entry from Room 129)
Instructors: Eleanor Selfridge-Field (esfield@stanford.edu)
Craig Stuart Sapp (craig@ccrma.stanford.edu)
