The Traditional Tune ArchiveEDIT
The Traditional Tune Archive is a web-based information storing and retrieval tool dedicated to instrumental music of the past 300 years traditionally used for dancing in Ireland, Great Britain, and North America. It is a semantic system in which the meanings (semantics) of information are organized in a way that makes it possible for the web to “understand” and satisfy the requests of people and machines to use the content. Thus, the aim is to allow the semantics of traditional music pieces — their properties, historical information and musicological traits, commentaries, etc. — to be employed in an improved data structure that allows for myriad research possibilities.
