Research groups

Engagement and Absorption

We explore the temporality of musical sense-making, absorption in musical performance, and spatiality and immersion. 

Entrainment and Pleasure

The entrainment and pleasure group investigates the phenomenon of entrainment in the context of music listening, focusing on its affective and social effects in particular.

Large-Scale Form

We investigate the role of rhythm in the time structure of audio-visual and musical works lasting from a couple to 20 or 30 minutes. 

Motion Analysis

In the motion analysis group we analyse human body motion using different types of motion capture systems, aiming to understand and create rhythmic motion and interaction.

Multimodal IR

Music Information Retrieval (MIR) research uses computational approaches to extract meaningful musical information from musical signals. 

Musical Interaction

Creation of interactive systems for music perception and performance. The methods used combine prototyping, sound design, composition, human-computer interaction design, machine learning, and signal processing.

Musical Rhythm

The musical rhythm research group conducts research into musical genres where rhythm is a core dimension, focusing on the perception and performance of structural and microrhythmic features and their relationship.

Remixing Time

Remixing time examines the pleasure of musical fragmentation with a focus on sample-based- and cut-and-paste music. In this context “remix” implies a technique—a play with time—rather than a genre.

Rhythm and Mind

The goal of the Rhythm & Mind (R&M) research group is to understand rhythm, or more generally time, as it rapidly unfolds in the perceptual and cognitive 'now' versus 'before' and 'after'.

Rhythmic Robots

Humans continuously relate to rhythm and move rhythmically, at multiple scales. Can machines understand rhythm, and benefit from rhythmic mechanisms?

Temporal prediction

We investigate the neurocognitive basis of temporal prediction and its interaction with attention, employing neuroimaging methods such as fMRI, scalp- and intracranial EEG.
