Hi Tim,

Congratulations to you and the entire TROMPA team for successful completion of the grant.  I look forward to hearing more about the project process and deliverables in the presentations at MEC and in your “how-we-done-it-good” project wrap-up.

You’re very gracious to include me in your acknowledgments.  I’m pleased that MEI has provided the foundation for so many projects.  While the original idea for it was mine, I didn’t create MEI alone.  Many, many people – including my friends at Goldsmiths! – had a hand in making MEI the success it is becoming.  I thank everyone who has contributed to MEI and look forward to working together with you – and our MEI future colleagues – to make it better.

I won’t be in Alicante, but I’ll see everyone virtually.  Let’s hope the recent Covid unpleasantness will be over and we can meet in person next year.

Best wishes,


Perry Roland

Dear MEI community,

This is a blatant plug for TROMPA, but also may be a case of ‘preaching to the choir’ as we quaint English say.

You may not all be aware of this, but the 3-year TROMPA EU project (ended 30 April 2021) - which had its final review this Wednesday, 16 June - depended in many crucial aspects on the adoption of MEI at an early stage (after a very brief format-tussle). This was largely due to our successful recruitment of David Weigl, one of the developers of MELD (Music Encoding and Linked Data), which also supports some crucial components of TROMPA.

TROMPA got a resoundingly positive review assessment, I’m glad to say, and we’re intending to find time to write this up soon as some kind of ’Success Story’, which will embed heavy stress on the importance of MEI, and *not just as something for musicologists*.

Meanwhile, however, there will be various TROMPA-related papers and posters at both DLfM and MEC, and some of the MEI-related technology developed or enhanced within TROMPA is already being used within other projects.

All best wishes for MEI and the TROMPA tools! (Now I must get back to thinking about tablature again!)

And finally, Thank You Perry for making this possible!!
