Abstract or Description

In this paper, we introduce AMusE, a music reasoning framework built using Abstract Data Types, describing some of the advantages of such an approach. We illustrate this with a particular set of tools capable of tapping into the framework’s capabilities: a score editor with the capability to edit some early music notations, and implementations of the SIA family of Music Information Retrieval tools. Putting these together, we discuss how the framework enables the general-purpose pattern-matching tool to operate on very specialised forms of notation. We conclude with a discussion of further work and the need for a more logic-based design and a more outward-looking deployment.
