Center for Music Technology Launched



Georgia Tech University has launched the Center for Music Technology with more than 20 researchers from the arts, sciences, and engineering. Several interdisciplinary projects already in progress will be demonstrated today at an exclusive launch event for potential collaborators.

"Our goal is to build an international center for creative and technological research in music that will redefine the way we create, perform, listen to and consume music," says Dr. Gil Weinberg, co-founder and director of the Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology. "To that end, we brought together top researchers from across campus who together can address current challenges in the field and develop new solutions that cannot be achieved in the framework of a single discipline."

"One of our new projects, called ZooZ Beat, for example, allows anyone with a cell phone to use expressive gestures to create and share music in a group," explains Weinberg. "Other projects explore concepts like wearable devices for music therapy, audience participation in live performance, robotic musicianship, music as an assistive medium for the visually impaired and computational analysis of music at the signal level." Other research areas include composition, machine listening, materials science, music information retrieval, digital signal processing, design and manufacturing, networked music, music perception, music theory, multimedia development and acoustics.

"Our goal is to build an international center for creative and technological research in music that will redefine the way we create, perform, listen to and consume music," says Weinberg.
