We have an international reputation for research that integrates practice with theory. Our research outputs include journal articles, monographs, book chapters, compositions, performances and installations. Strong links with industry, world class practitioners, and the latest technological innovations ensure that the research remains current, relevant and useful.
Our research lies at the forefront of industry-focused activity in creative digital media, spatial audio, psycho-acoustic engineering and video production, and specialises in the theoretical, socio-cultural and practice-based understanding of historical and contemporary musics, their composition, performance and analysis.
Through the investigation of these interrelated areas of sound, image and music we aim to produce world-leading disciplinary and interdisciplinary research that advances theoretical, technological, practical and creative knowledge and understanding, and has demonstrable societal and cultural impact and cutting-edge industry application.
Our research explores issues in digital media arts, music, sound art, and sound recording, and are realised through written, creative and technological outputs as well as through scholarly and public events, industry collaborations, and international networks of activity.
