Organization profile

The Music Interaction and Cognition Group (MusIC) is a research group within the Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology, Aalborg University. The group carries out research in the following three main areas

  • development of computational models and algorithms with the goal of advancing our understanding of the cognitive processes underpinning musical behaviour in activities such as composition, improvisation, analysis and performance
  • empirical and experimental studies in music perception and cognition
  • design and development of novel physical interfaces and digital instruments for music interaction

The group's research falls within the fields of computational music analysis, music generation, music interaction, music cognition, mathematical music theory, music and machine learning, music information retrieval, and new instruments for musical expression.

The group hosts the Music Interaction and Cognition Seminars
