Research

Composing Innovation

The School of Music incorporates Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology research into all our degree programs. Every student majoring in music technology is also a researcher, collaborating with our faculty on groundbreaking topics in one of four labs:

DISTRIBUTED MUSIC, COMPOSITION, EDUCATION
Enables mass-audience participation in live concert performances through real-time music notation systems, connecting the audience to the performer. This research also develops transformative technologies for music education for STEAM (STEM + Arts) classrooms and studies the impact of music, technology, and creativity on the ways people learn.

MUSICAL ACOUSTICS
Bridges the fields of music, engineering, and technology by studying both historical and modern instruments to devise new ways to build instruments. The lab also studies performance spaces to find optimal sound and vibrations.

MUSIC INFORMATICS
Teaches computers to listen to and understand music, incorporating a variety of topics from the fields of audio content analysis and music processing. It includes such tasks as transcribing musical scores, identifying instruments, or automatically assessing music performances.
 
ROBOTIC MUSICIANSHIP
Researches methods of creating meaningful musical interactions between humans and machines, through novel experiences and outcomes. This work combines the emotion and expression of human musicians with the power processing and note accuracy of robotics.
