MusicLab

MusicLab is an innovation project exploring new methods for conducting research, research communication and education. Each MusicLab event is organized around a music performance, which is also the object of study. We explore different types of sensing systems that work in real-world contexts, for example, measuring breathing, muscle tension or motion of the performers and audience members. 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.

MusicLab is a joint project between RITMO and the University Library.

"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.
