The Contemporary Music Research Community (CMRC) at the University of York supports and promotes creativity in contemporary music of all kinds.

We are firmly committed to the idea of practice as research and our staff and students are all dedicated to the creation of new music through composition, improvisation and performance.

The cluster offers outstanding facilities and a supportive environment in which creative ideas can be realised and our staff have a wide range of experience and expertise. Research students from all parts of the world pursue projects independently or in collaboration with each other.

The CMRC hosts a packed schedule of seminars, performances and workshops every semester, with distinguished visiting artists and scholars.
