Technologies for Musical Creativity Group


Technologies for Musical Creativity Group (TMCG) focuses on the development of technology that, as a fundamental principle, considers the complexities of musical and creative processes. For this purpose, we utilise integrated and interdisciplinary approaches combining artistic, scientific and engineering methods with a critical understanding of musical practice, listening conventions, and socio-musical relations.

We ask how technology can aid, enhance and facilitate creativity in composition, performance, improvisation, and other creative practices in music and sound art. The research group also examines how musical creativity can be computationally modelled, simulated and replicated.
