ah semantics

So I'm fairly certain this has been discussed before, but I'm going to pose the question again.  Music Information Retrieval or something else?  I prefer the term Music Informatics as I find it to be more generally encompassing of the sort of work that get labeled with the more well used term music information retrieval, but perhaps not?

it does ruin the ISMIR acronym though, which everyone seems to love. Frankly even if people were open to change it, ISMI is just not as good as acronyms go. But otherwise, Music Informatics!
