Research at Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology (GTCMT)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A review and discussion of GTCMT research projects in musical AI, STEAM, robotics musicians, sonification, music and the brain, and acoustics.

Last year, Gil Weinberg wowed crowds with a marimba-playing robot and a cyborg jazz band. This year, Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology returns with this conversation, and an elevated program of intimate seminars and workshops led by graduate students and professors.

Program Themes

Instrument Design

Since the first humans stood upright, people have been compelled to make sounds and compose them into rhythm and song. Humanity progresses, societies evolve, and expressions, representations, and tastes shift wildly, but the drive to make tools that produce music will always permeate all cultures. Once instrument builders first began to harness electronic technologies into new possibilities for instrument design, the door opened to radical innovations in performance, creation, and control. These are boundless tools: from the first synthesizers to the... Read More →
