Musica Restituta Digital Data: Retrieval from Medieval Music Palimpsests

June 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The event is the closing workshop of an international collaborative research project on early chant palimpsests (10th–11th c.), Musica Restituta Digital Data Retrieval from Medieval Music Palimpsests, funded by Oxford’s John Fell Fund, and the Leverhlume Trust (1st phase: 2019-2020), as well as by the University of Trento (2nd phase: 2020-2021). The project was a proof-of-concept for the digitisation and digital enhancement of some among the earliest chant palimpsests from early medieval Italy, now held at Vercelli, Assisi, and Mantua.

The workshop will take place on Friday 18th June 2021, 2-4pm on Zoom. Julia Craig-McFeely (Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music) and Giovanni Varelli will be joined by Dr Andreas Janke (Hamburg) and Prof. Christelle Cazaux (Basel).
