The OU hosts generous laboratory facilities and specialist staff dedicated to empirical analysis of musical performance and of the acoustics of musical instruments.
Music computing research at the OU is focused on empowering musicians, illuminating musical activities, and modelling music perception and cognition. Our work is informed by musicology, psychology, ethnography, embodied cognition, pervasive interaction, mathematics and advanced computing techniques. In particular, we devise and investigate new ways to:
- empower beginners to engage deeply with musical activities
- provide new tools and capabilities for expert musicians and theorists
- cast new light on how music works.
