all together

Our research focuses on exploring computational methods to analyze or synthesize sounds with applications to various musical contexts including music listening, performance, composition, production, education and entertainment. We are particularly interested in developing "musically intelligent machines" that understand sounds, represent the meanings in a human-friendly manner, and generate new musical content.
