Objectives
 
 
  • To produce new research in the field of Music Acoustics that is of social value;
  • To break new ground in musicology and ethnomusicology, by proposing new transdisciplinary approaches;
  • To explore new and comprehensive ways of investigating musical sounds, in particular by exploiting the power of analytical techniques stemming from the exact sciences, while taking into account cultural factors;
  • To enhance the acoustical and cultural value of musical instruments and promote musical heritage in all forms, tangible and intangible;
  • To disseminate research results through open-access research articles, the organization of workshops and exhibitions, as well public concerts. 
  • To establish close relations with research institutions, universities and institutional partners, in order to actively participate in scientific actions and develop new research projects;
  • To consolidate teaching activities in the advanced training course “Acoustics and Sound Studies” offered by the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences, and provide research-informed teaching targeted at the general public.

 

 

Priorities

 

 

  • To develop new instrumental techniques and computational models for the characterization and simulation of musical instruments;
  • To provide techniques and tools for optimizing the sound qualities of musical instrument and create new musical instruments;
  • To compliment academic research with technology transfer by developing close links with musical instrument making companies;
  • To reinforce teaching activities in the advanced training course “Acoustics and Sound Studies” offered by the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences.
