YMPG hosts Music Department research seminar today by Dr Duncan Williams: 'Music or ‘just’ Noise: Does your brain agree with your heart?’

Posted on Wednesday 17 October 2018

This talk considered noise as a category of sound responses; including definitions used by acousticians and engineers, and in the context of music. It also discussed the use of alternative metrics - particularly the emerging field of multimodal biophysiological response - to suggest how these tools might be adapted to musical metering and control signals in creative music contexts.
