Professor compiles computer-assisted music analysis studies

Peter Lang International Academic Publishers has published a book by Dr. Nico Schüler, Computer-Assisted Music Analysis (1950s-1970s): Essays and Bibliographies.


Dr. Schuler describes the book with this abstract: “Computer-assisted music analysis, which emerged about 60 years ago, provides analytical tools that help solve stylistic, comparative, structural, and other problems. Most research in this area has been carried out without any explicit review of preceding attempts and accomplishments. As the first volume of a series of books, this monograph provides a historical account and framework of methods of computer-assisted music analysis, including critical reflections. The source materials consist of hundreds of published and unpublished writings, including dissertations and internal research papers from many countries. Each thematic essay contains an extensive bibliography; an alphabetical and a chronological bibliography are also included in this book.”
