New Aesthetics in Computer Music

New Aesthetics in Computer Music was a research project based in the Music Research Centre at the University of York (UK), between 2007 and 2010. It conducted research into experimental electronic music with an emphasis on independent and oppositional practices and aesthetics.

A major part of the project was an artist in residence programme. This was targeted at professional artists who primarily work outside an academic context. Nine artists were invited to participate in the programme. The research group produced publications documenting the field and residencies.

The project employed the following researchers: Thom Blake, Mark Fell, Tony Myatt and Pete Worth, and was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
