Tasso in Music Project: New Features and Analytical Tools (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Tasso in Music Project: New Features and Analytical Tools
Author: Emiliano Ricciardi
Abstract: Currently funded by a Scholarly Editions Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (2016-19), the Tasso in Music Project is an open-access and interactive digital platform that allows music historians, performers, and literary scholars to access and analyze late 16th- and early 17th-century settings of poetry by Torquato Tasso, arguably the most prominent literary figure of early modern Italy. The goal of this poster presentation is to show recently added or in-progress features and analytical tools, which will enhance the project’s functionality and facilitate the study of the project’s musical and poetic repertoire. These recent additions include: 1) SVG score visualization, realized through the newly developed Verovio-Humdrum viewer; 2) Dynamic, in-score visualization of musical variants and critical notes; 3) Transposition tool, designed for performers; 4) Extensive array of Humdrum-generated musical search tools (single pitch, melodic/rhythmic pattern, vertical sonority); 5) Combined musical/textual search tools; 6) Word-count automatic generator, designed to track repetitions in the text underlay of the project’s musical settings; 7) TEI-generated literary source concordance tool, with automatic display of degree of concordance across sources; 8) Hyperlinks to all available digital copies of original sources.
