N.B. in Dec. 2014 MuseData access was removed from music21 because the rights conflicted with access computationally from music21. This module is retained for anyone who has such access, however it is completely untested now and errors cannot and will not be fixed.

Functions for translating music21 objects and MuseDataHandler instances. Mostly, these functions are for advanced, low level usage. For basic importing of MuseData files from a file or URL to a Stream, use the music21 converter module’s parse() function.


music21.musedata.translate.museDataWorkToStreamScore(museDataWork, inputM21=None)

Given an museDataWork object, build into a multi-part Score with metadata.

This assumes that this MuseDataHandler defines a single work (with 1 or fewer reference numbers).

if the optional parameter inputM21 is given a music21 Stream subclass, it will use that object as the outermost object. However, inner parts will always be made Part objects.

music21.musedata.translate.musedataPartToStreamPart(museDataPart, inputM21=None)

Translate a musedata part to a Part.
