HKUST Red Bird Visiting Scholars Lecture Series

Construction and Application of the Chinese Traditional Music Database


The advent of the AI era has posed new challenges to musical creativity, making music data an increasingly vital foundation for research in music artificial intelligence, particularly in the realm of digitizing Chinese traditional music. In this lecture, the speaker will introduce the development of the CCMusic Data Sharing Platform, a comprehensive music audio database. The platform encompasses multiple datasets, including MIR (Music Information Retrieval) multifunctional dataset, Chinese traditional musical instrument audio dataset, Chinese music dataset, and multimodal music generation. Additionally, the lecture will showcase research cases in computational musicology, artistic presentation, and expression based on the data platform.
