The Online Repository for Electroacoustic Music Analysis (OREMA) project is a community-based forum where analysts of electroacoustic music can post their analyses of electroacoustic music compositions. It allows people with different ideas of analysis a space to discuss why they choose to analyse a piece in a certain way. The aim of the project is to gauge whether a community initiative can aid an analyst's understanding of a work, whilst helping them conduct an analysis themselves.
The OREMA project is part of a three year funded project titled the New Multimedia Tools for Electroacoustic Music Analysis project, which is orchestrated by De Montfort University(DMU). The project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
The OREMA project has been set up to allow analysts of electroacoustic music a place where they can discuss and share their ideas within a community of like-minded individuals. It gives analysts a space to post their analyses for others to see and comment on. As the OREMA project is a community-based initiative users are encouraged to share and adapt each others analyses of electroacoustic works and join in discussions regarding electroacoustic analysis methodologies.
The OREMA project site is maintained by its creator and administrator Michael Gatt.
