Abstract

Research and development efforts to significantly enhance access to chopin early edition's (CEE) unique collection of music materials were discussed. The project involves the creation of a searchable textual representation of the collection's melodic material via the construction of interval-only monophonic melodic n-grams. The project is premised upon the importance of the concept of uniform title as both a collocator and a discovery tool in music digital libraries (MDL). Efforts were made to optimize the n-gram creation procedures and to create one or more user-friendly melodic search interfaces.
