AI, Music and Interaction Lab


The lab explores research in computer science and music, sonification, music information retrieval, 3D audio, artificial intelligence, interaction, and avant garde forms of music composition and performance, as well as music technology.

Research topics include:

  • sonification and interaction design
  • spatial audio and virtual/augmented reality
  • music performance and digital musical instruments
  • interfaces for musical expression, including sensors and hardware
  • interactive audio and game audio
  • telematic performance

We explore all aspects of computer science (artificial intelligence, big data, human computer interaction, etc.) as they contribute to the above areas.  Here are examples of earlier or on-going research projects.
