Call for participants

Musicologists, ethnomusicologists, composers, sound/media/performance practitioners, data wranglers, informatics researchers and all manner of data/music people – I am very pleased to announce a new series of AHRC Collaborative Skills Workshops for Post-Graduate, Doctoral and Early Career Researchers starting in February 2015.

As data becomes an increasingly important and accessible part of our lives, work, research, and experience of music, this series of workshops will explore the relationship between quantitative data and music research. This will include the possible approaches to quantitative data in music research, techniques for collecting and managing data, creative critique and utilisation of data in sound, media or composition practice, and the implications of ‘big data’.

Workshops will take place at the Institute for Musical Research, University of London with a follow-up study session and final symposium held at the University of Sussex.

Dates and titles for the initial workshops can be found below and more information will be posted here in the coming weeks.
