MusicLab is an innovation project by RITMO and the University Library. The aim is to explore new methods for conducting research, research communication and education. The project is organized around events: a concert in a public venue, which is also the object of study. The events also contain an edutainment element through panel discussions with world-leading researchers and artists, as well "data jockeying" in the form of live data analysis of recorded data.
Playing and listening to music increases our quality of living. To analyze why this is so, it is advantageous to understand how body and mind is engaged when expert musicians perform.
In the 5th edition of MusicLab we invite you to an online algorave (algorithmic rave)! Prominent algoravers Renick Bell and Khoparzi will improvise live-coded music on their computers from their respective locations in Japan and India, while the audience will dance to the rave music in their homes all over the world. This event is also the launch of our brand new MusicLab App!
Muscle music, artificial intelligence, and a human subwoofer? In our utopian edition of MusicLab you will experience truly experimental music.
MusicLab Vol. 3 explores the phenomenon of rhythm - in music and in the body - all within MusicLab’s unique blend of research and edutainment through an intellectual warm-up with world-leading experts, music-dance performances and data jockeying with our house DJ and anyone else interested.
Join us for an informal evening of hacking on data recorded during MusicLab vol 1 and 2: sound, video, muscle sensors (EMG) and breathing.
MusicLab Vol. 2 explores the concept of breathing - in music and in the body. All within MusicLab’s unique blend of research and edutainment through hands-on workshops, intellectual warm-ups, performances and data jockeying.
"Biophysical Music" is volume 1 of the new concept "MusicLab", a series of events exploring the science of music from different perspectives. The idea is to mix research and edutainment through hands-on workshops, intellectual warm-ups, performances and data jockeying.
