Full description

At Anglia Ruskin, you’ll find staff members who are particularly active in the following areas:

  • music composition (instrumental and electronic)
  • algorithmic composition (involving both hardware and software development)
  • live, real-time notation and its role in algorithmic composition, performance and improvisation
  • live, technology-mediated interaction in performance and improvisation and the notion of liveness in interaction
  • human computer interaction in music, in particular the role of movement, gesture and interaction from live performer
  • interaction between these elements and live capture of performed audio and its influence on live notation, performance and improvisation.

The interdisciplinary nature of our research creates a rich and stimulating environment for staff and students. You’ll benefit from a variety of research-oriented events, including our Faculty and Departmental research seminar series, performance events and international conferences.

We enjoy links with the wider community, including local arts venues like The Junction, the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse and Kettle's Yard; the University of Cambridge's Centre for Research into Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH); and various NHS health providers.
