It has now been confirmed that the Sensing Music-related Actions project will move into new spaces in a building called Veglaboratoriet. The building, which used to house various types of chemical laboratories, is located next to the computer science building. The downside is that we will be farther away from the music department (10 minutes to walk...), but we will be one floor up from the robot lab of the ROBIN group, the partner in our new project.
The new space consists of 2 large and 3 smaller rooms, and will provide for a permanent "movement lab", an open working space for master and PhD students, as well as offices and storage. We just need to move some furniture and old light armature before we can start moving in.
Research coordinator Anne Cathrine Wesnes shot a bunch of pictures during the "Open lab" tour we gave for new music students last week. The lab is now starting to get together, and we have decided that the official opening ceremony will be Friday 26 September 1215-1300.
We are happy to announce that the Swedish company Qualisys will give a demonstration of their motion capture system during our kickoff-seminar .
