Baudelaire Song Project


The Baudelaire Song Project researches and brings together for the first time all the song settings ever of Baudelaire’s poetry, looking at classical music and popular music settings, in French original and in translation, with music scores and in audio format. Hosted by The University of Birmingham (UK) with HRI Digital at The University of Sheffield (UK), it is generously funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) from 2015-2019. Working with HRI Digital, it will generate a major new dataset to enable cross-analysis and visualisation of key findings.

On 20 November 2015, the Baudelaire Song Project held its first Advisory Board meeting, welcoming colleagues from Edinburgh, Oxford, and Toulouse (François-Charles Gaudard, Christine Calvet, institut IRPALL), to discuss the latest developments in the project design, data input, and analysis tools and techniques.
