Taverna has been used for the composition of music using Web services for synthesis.

Composition of music

John Ffitch and others at the University of Bath have developed a service-oriented composition environment for music. The environment consists of three main components: - A suite of synthesis Web services that incorporate a selection of the basic atomic components required for sound creation and processing - A tool that gives a description of music in terms of the construction of the instruments (parameters, connections) and the score they will play on> - An “environment of use” that allows the connection and enactment of the synthesis services

Both Triana and Taverna have been tested as the environment of use.
