Sound and Music Computing at the University of Oslo

This year’s Sound and Music Computing (SMC) Conference has opened for virtual lab tours. When we cannot travel to visit each other, this is a great way to showcase how things look and what we are working on.

Stefano Fasciani and I teamed up a couple of weeks ago to walk around some of the labs and studios at the Department of Musicology and RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time, and Motion. We started in the Portal used for the Music, Communication & Technology master’s programme and ended up in the fourMs Lab.

Needless to say, we only scratched the surface of everything going on in the field of sound and music computing at the University of Oslo in this video. The video focused primarily on our infrastructures. We have several ongoing projects that use these studios and labs and also some non-lab-based projects. This include:

And I should not forget to mention our exciting collaboration with partners in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, and Reykjavik in the Nordic Sound and Music Computing network.

And, as we end the video, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to visit us or collaborate on projects.
