Josquin Research Project

The goal of the Josquin Research Project is to facilitate a new kind of knowing that brings “big data” into conversation with traditional analytical methods — a new way to engage with Renaissance music. For the first time this music is fully searchable: in a few clicks you can identify every instance of a given melodic and/or rhythmic pattern. The JRP also provides analytical tools that can be used to gain insight into individual works, the style of a given composer, or the musical lingua franca.

PerfomSites developer Ari Salomon worked with designer Jenny Martinez  to implement a minimalistic design that recalls the quiet introspection of some of the music archived by JRP. JPR staff built the functionality that allows users to search and sort and analyze in a visual way.
