Abstract : The Musiconis (http://musiconis.huma-num.fr/en/) database presents and analyzes medieval visual representations of musical performances (featuring instrumental musicians, singers, and dancers) in artworks from the 8th to the 16th century. A metabase, Musiconis imports records from existing databases, such as Gothic Ivories, and adds the music-related metadata that is frequently either absent or inaccurate. Musiconis is structured around the ontology of a musical scene, so searches can be based on actions (how an instrument is being played) in addition to the name of the instrument. The database came out of a long-term project that brought together Paris-based music historians and art historians in the study of medieval images of music. In 2016, Columbia joined the Paris team for FAB-Musiconis, a three-year transatlantic exchange involving graduate students and faculty. Graduate student participants learned how to create and edit records in the Musiconis metabase; an engineer improved functionality in real time during working sessions. The Columbia University Libraries supported the project through excellent seminars on metadata, digital humanities seminars, guidance on learning outcomes, and access to spaces and collections.
