MICRO - Human Bodily Micromotion in Music Perception and Interaction
How and why does music make us move? This project will investigate how music influences what we may call micromotion, such as the tiny motion observed when people try to stand still.
TIME – Timing and Sound in Musical Microrhythm
When does a beat actually happen in time? What part of the beat’s sound constitutes its temporal position, and how does this perception or judgment depend upon a listener’s music-cultural background?
AAAI - Acoustically Active Augmented Instruments
A project exploring acoustic lutherie, musical electronics, sound programming, and interaction design in order to create new types of hybrid instruments.
EPEC - Engineering Predictability with Embodied Cognition
How can multimodal systems sense, learn, and predict future events?
INTIMAL: Interfaces for Relational Listening – Body, Memory, Migration, Telematics
INTIMAL explores the body as an “interface” for keeping and transforming the memory of place in migratory contexts. The aim is to develop and explore a physical-virtual “embodied system” for relational listening.
MASHED - Mashup Music, Copyright, and Platform Regulation
Social media platforms’ implementation of algorithms intended to block copyright-infringing content has returned to the forefront a long-simmering debate: How can we best balance the incentives of copyright with the purposes and desires of sample-based music in order to protect freedom of expression?
MIRAGE - A Comprehensive AI-Based System for Advanced Music Analysis
One main goal is to improve computers' capability to listen to and understand music, and to conceive technologies to facilitate music understanding and appreciation. One main application is to make music more accessible and engaging.
NordicSMC - Nordic Sound and Music Computing network
NordicSMC is a network project aimed at develop sound and music computing research excellency in the Nordic countries.
Oscillatory mechanisms supporting human cognition
The primary objective of the "Oscillatory mechanisms supporting human cognition" project is to acquire new knowledge about the fundamental electrophysiological mechanisms that enable working memory, prediction and attentional control in the human brain.
RITPART is a partnership project with the aim of connecting RITMO to world-leading research groups in USA, Canada and Japan.
How still is still? How silent is silent? Sverm explores the use of human micromotion in artistic practice.
eInfrastructure for video research (eVIR )
e Infrastructure for video research (eVIR ) is a project supported by the Research Council of Norway (RCN).
