Digital Musicology and Stravinsky's Octet

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The Octet for Wind Instruments (1922-3) marks the beginning of Stravinsky’s neoclassical period. Drawing upon traditional musical form yet utilising diatonic and octatonic pitch structures the work is seminal.

Stravinsky’s music has been subject to a range of analysis, however to our knowledge the application of digital musicology techniques to his music has not been thoroughly investigated.

This conference presentation outlines the adopted digital musicology approaches together with the initial results of melodic and harmonic analysis.
