What is Cognitive
Musicology?

Cognitive musicology is the set of all phenomena
surrounding computational and mental
representations of musical thought and action.

Goal and Motivation

According to Otto Laske (1999), one of the
foremost champions of the field, the goal of
cognitive musicology (also known as AI and
Music) is the computational modeling of musical
knowledge, and the motivation behind this goal is
to gain understanding of both music and
cognition.

Why the Computational
Emphasis?

The computer is central to the enterprise since
computer modeling invites comparison to
cognitive processing, provides an exacting
interactive medium in which to formulate and test
theories, and facilitates the collection of data for
analysis.
