The work of the Transforming Musicology project is distributed over four UK institutions, with one international partner.
The project also has an advisory panel comprising authorities in a number of fields related to the project.
- Goldsmiths' College Computing
- The Computing Department at Goldsmiths' College has very strong links with the music information retrieval community and will contribute expertise in enhancing MIR technology. The work on 16th-century lute and vocal music will also be largely based in this department.
- Goldsmiths' College Psychology
- The Psychology Department at Goldsmiths' College has extensive experience in studying musical perception for a variety of applications. The Department will be responsible for carrying out the studies of psychological perception of Wagnerian leitmotifs.
- Queen Mary University of London
- The Electronic Engineering and Computer Science department at Queen Mary, like Goldsmiths, is very much involved in the MIR community and will contribute expertise in developing MIR technologies.
- Oxford Music Faculty
- The Music Faculty at Oxford University will be the main centre for the Wagner leitmotif studies and provides a rich history of musicological expertise.
- Oxford e-Research Centre
- The Oxford e-Research Centre (based at Oxford University) is a world centre for understanding and developing Semantic Web technologies and will also be responsible for much of the digital infrastructure on which the rest of the project's work will depend.
- Lancaster University
- The Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts houses a research active music department and will be responsible for shepherding the mini-projects in which ideas explored in the project will be tested within the larger musicological community.
- Utrecht University
- Frans Wiering at Utrecht University has been a strong voice for sound musicological grounding in the MIR community since that community's inception in the late 1990s.
