Our Research Transforms the Musical Experience

Research at the Center for Music Technology focuses on creating innovative musical technologies that can transform the way we create, experience, and learn music. Areas of interest include education, robotic musicianship, machine learning, digital signal processing, musical informatics, new interfaces for musical expression, sonification, acoustics, music cognition, mobile music, interactive music, and networked music, among others.

Research in the Center is conducted under four main research groups: Music Informatics, Robotic Musicianship, Computational Music for All, and Computational and Cognitive Musicology.
