Introduction to Symbolic Music Information Retrieval

I prepared a research paper on the relatively new and dynamic field of symbolic music information retrieval (MIR), a sub-domain of information retrieval (IR). My report provides an overview of the technology, a review of MIR literature, and an introduction to an existing MIR website, The Josquin Research Project. In this post, you can read the report’s introduction and literature review that shows an in-depth understanding of symbolic MIR and provides some critical analysis of the literature.
