Over recent decades, the natural sciences have moved from formulating hypotheses through the observation of phenomena to generating them automatically through the analysis of large cross-disciplinary datasets, collected and maintained within large collaborative projects. Recently, it was suggested that musicology should embrace the same paradigm shift, and move to a more collaborative and data-oriented culture. In this paper, we describe the MIDI Linked Data Cloud, an RDF graph of 10 billion MIDI statements linked to contextual metadata. We show examples of its potential application for digital libraries for musicology, and we argue that the use of Linked Data for integrating symbolic music notations and contextual metadata constitutes technical foundations for Web-scale musicology projects.
