The EAST in Project EAST stands for "East Asian Songs and Texts". There are two major implementation goals for this project:
Computationall Analysis of Melodies and Texts
This portion of the project aims to implement a program that reads in music data files (text files) and performs several useful melody and/or text analysis functions on the music. The idea for this program is based on Stanford's CCARH-developed Humdrum Toolkit. It should work like an interactive command line toolkit for performing analysis. The program can process multiple files to provide statistical information or give specific details on singular pieces. By combining both capabilities, the program seeks to provide a computational basis for melody and text-in-relation-to-melody comparison among music collections.
