• CIRCUS for Beginners

      Boehm, Carola; Patterson, John (2001)
      This paper describes “Content Integrated Research in Creative User Systems” (CIRCUS), a working group of the ESPRIT programme of the European Union; describing its origins, its main concerns, and viewing some of its conclusions. The paper examines the distinction between the practice-based art and design community and the more knowledge-based computer technology community. The CIRCUS research agenda has been led by the concept of creative pull, a concept which gives priority, even control, to the creative maker or user in the development of technological capability. The paper examines the working group and its focus on this concept and how to support it through technological means.
    • MuTaTeD’ll A System for Music Information Retrieval of Encoded Music

      Boehm, Carola (Library and Information Commission, 2001)
      This is the final publication of the results of the project “MuTaTed’II”, A system for Information Retrieval of Encoded Music”. The aim of the project was to design and implement an information retrieval system with delivery/access services for digital music and sound. The project was documented and the results presented at various conferences; (ICMC 2000 Berlin, ISMI 2000 Massachusetts, Euromicro 2000 Amsterdam).
    • The discipline that never was: current developments in music technology in higher education in Britain

      Boehm, Carola (Intellect, 2007)
      This article discusses current issues around the provision of music technology in British universities. The discussion is based on the most current results from the project ‘Betweening’, funded by Palatine (Higher Education Academy). The aim of the project was to explore the educational landscape of music technology in HE and to provide an oversight of the different models used. The way a particular discipline – music technology – becomes established and how it evolves has as much to do with institutional and governmental politics, social constructs and pedagogical methodologies, as it does with the discipline itself. As well as an overview of the findings from quantitative studies (published in detail in Boehm 2006), this article discusses the findings from the qualitative information gathered from the Betweening project in order to provide an overview of the educational landscape of music technology in higher education in Britain today.
    • The search for the temporal grail? Reflections on notation, control and digital music representations

      Boehm, Carola (2007)
      This article examines notation, music representation and the representation of time. It builds on Boehm’s experience designing and implementing large-scale time-based information systems. In this article she focuses upon methodologies used for designing systems and data structures for time-based media. This submission looks specifically at issues around notation, control and the resulting requirements for digital representation of music and time-based information.
