In COGITCH, music collections are made searchable on the basis of the element in music that is best remembered, the so-called 'hook'.

In COGITCH (COgnition Guided Interoperability beTween Collections of musical Heritage) research is done into the elements in music that are best remembered, the so-called 'hooks'. In order to determine where these hooks are located, use is made of crowdsourcing. With the results a search engine is built with which the catalog of Sound and Vision and the Dutch Song Database of the Meertens Institute can be searched.

COGITCH is financed within the NWO CATCH programme.
