In this paper, we describe our instrumentation research for recorder instruments and its documentation method devel- oped to operate as a web application. Our aim is to pro- pose an application that enhances the knowledge and ex- periences of musicians, especially composers, about the recorder family and to encourage their creative activities. Furthermore we suggest proper notations, which enable composers to illustrate their musical ideas precisely and increases the efficiency of communication between musi- cians and composers. In our research, we analyze the cor- relations between the mechanisms and the actual results of sound production by means of four primary components (instrument model - air - mouth - fingers). This project is carried out through an interaction between artistic re- search involving collaborations with composers and musi- cians and scientific research including audio analysis, e- learning and data-mining. In our web application, we em- ploy a large audio database to describe the mechanism of the playing techniques of recorders along with a graphic user interface with the aim of simplifying the navigation.
