To register visit
This one-day symposium is the culmination of an AHRC Collaborative Skills Project on Quantitative Data for Music Researchers run by the University of Sussex, in partnership with the Institute for Musical Research at The University of London School of Advanced Studies. The project featured a series of workshops, hosted at the IMR, covering a broad range of topics around the use of quantitative data in music research, creative practice and composition. These workshops were led by Daniel Müllensiefen (Goldsmiths), Joel Ryan (Sonology, The Hague/STEIM), and Stephen Rose (Royal Holloway) covering topics including: music and the brain, music as data, quantitative music analysis, data analysis tools, data visualization, audience analysis, time/space in performance, performance technologies, data sonification, big data and music history, text-mining, digitization and the archive/library.
The symposium offers the opportunity to explore some of this territory in more depth, examining specific research projects, sharing compositional/creative practice and offering a forum for further discussion.
