Current Projects the MITRC are involved in, include:
- EARS: The Electroacoustic Resource Site:
EARS is a structured Internet portal designed to aid those conducting research in Electroacoustic Music Studies. The project is in collaboration with Pierre Couprie and Rob Weale, with the project being funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and Unesco. For more information, please visit here.
- EARS II + Composing With Sounds:
This project will offer young people (11-14 year olds) and interested people the chance to become acquainted with music made from sounds. The project offers a complete curriculum focusing on listening, understanding of relevant concepts and making the music of sounds. The project will offer users different forms of navigation so they can follow their teacher’s or their own programme of discovery. This intuitive software includes a host of manipulation, generation and sequencing tools for inexperienced users. This project has been funded by the EU culture programme and involves many of the MTI’s current partners. The launch of Composing with Sounds involves 18 schools in the six countries and culminates in concerts and teacher’s workshops in all six.
- New Multimedia Tools for Electroacoustic Music Analysis
This three year research project will develop an analysis software package and an analytical toolbox relevant to the breadth of electroacoustic genres. This will bring together existing methods with the latest interactive and hypermedia tools, applying them to a range of works to compare their strengths and weaknesses. The project will results in being able to better judge which analytical approaches are best suited to gain an insight and understanding of a genre of music. This project was made possible by a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
- The Electroacoustic Music Studies Network (EMS)
This project facilitates developments in their vital field. It hosts international events focusing relevant subjects every other year.
MTI Hosts the journal Organised Sound: an International Journal of Music Technology (Cambridge University Press).
