CompMusic is a research project funded by the European Research Council from 2011 to 2017 and coordinated by Xavier Serra from the Music Technology Group of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona (Spain). It aims to advance in the automatic description of music by emphasizing cultural specificity, carrying research within the field of music information processing with a domain knowledge approach. The project focuses on five music traditions of the world: Hindustani (North India), Carnatic (South India), Turkish-makam (Turkey), Arab-Andalusian (Maghreb), and Beijing Opera (China).

CompMusic was present at ISMIR 2022 in Bengaluru and Chennai, India.

During ISMIR 2022, between December 4 and December 8 in 2022, CompMusic was very present in the "Tutorial on Computational Methods For Supporting Corpus-Based Research On Indian Art Music". This tutorial is a joint effort by many professors and researchers, most of them CompMusic-involved, to put together a list of tools and materials to get started with the computational analysis of Indian Art Music traditions.

The week after ISMIR, a satellite event of the said conference is happening in Chennai: CompMusic Workshop 2022: Introduction to Computational Musicology, a Carnatic Music perspective. This 5-day workshop can be seen as an extended version of the ISMIR Tutorial, including numerous expert talks by professors, researchers, and musicians, in addition to hands-on sessions to get started with the computational musicology research of Carnatic Music. This workshop will happen at the same time as the December Season in Chennai.
