Abstract

The aim of this study is to explore how we could use computational technology to help determination of the chronology of music manuscripts. Applying a battery of techniques to Bach's manuscripts reveals the limitation in current image processing techniques, thereby clarifying future tasks. Analysis of C-clefs, the chosen musical symbol for this study, extracted from Bach's manuscripts dating from 1708-1748, is also carried out. Random forest using 15 features produces significant accuracy for chronological classification.
