ERC Project COSMOS
Using data science, optimization/data analytics, citizen science to study musical structures as they emerge in performance and in cardiac arrhythmias.
The ERC project COSMOS (Principal Investigator: Elaine Chew) at the CNRS – UMR9912 / STMS (IRCAM) uses data science, optimization/data analytics, and citizen science to study musical structures as they emerge in performance and in cardiac arrhythmias.
The project's research themes are as follows: i) to find new ways to represent and explore variations in recorded performance and time-varying sequences; ii) to harness volunteer thinking (citizen science) for music performance research by focussing on structures experienced and problem solving; iii) to create sandbox environments to experiment with making performed structures; iv) to create theoretical frameworks to discover the reasoning behind the structures perceived and made; and, v) to foster community engagement by training experts (including retired musicians) to provide feedback on structure solutions so as to increase public understanding of the creative work in music performance.
The COSMOS project will be periodically recruiting team members for positions of post-doc, PhD, and engineer.
