Abstract/Description: This dissertation, titled Investigating Music Information Objects, is a study of the nature, description, representations, and ideas related to music information objects (MIOs). This research study investigates how music practitioners from various traditions describe and conceptualize MIOs, using a theoretical framework to classify such descriptors and characteristics (the term "attributes" might also apply). The introduction in Chapter 1 provides an overview of purpose, problem statement, significance of this research, research questions, approach, and theoretical framework used. Next, Chapter 2 is a literature review of relevant research. Chapter 3 describes the method and analysis procedures that were used. Chapter 4 presents the research findings, and Chapter 5 discusses implications of the study for Information Science and music information research; provides theoretical extensions to the existing framework; and, offers conclusions taken from this study's findings, along with areas for future research.
