Organisation profile

The Music Informatics and Cognition Group (MusIC) is a research group led by David Meredith within the Aalborg Media Technology Section (MTA) of the Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology (Create), Aalborg University. The group develops novel computational models and algorithms with the goal of advancing our understanding of the cognitive processes underpinning expert musical behaviour in activities such as composition, improvisation, analysis and performance. The group's research falls within the fields of computational music analysis, music cognition, mathematical music theory, music and machine learning and music information retrieval.
