What?

Many people asks me: “what is your research question?”, “what is your subject?”, “what exactly will you do??” and other valid and good questions.

The broad answer is “more knowledge in the area of music in interactive applications”, but there are of course much more to say. I also wouldn’t be totally surprised if the target moves a bit when I start trying to catch it, but here is a glimpse of what can be expected:

  • I will scan research done so far in the subject
  • I will network with other nerds around the world searching for answers
  • I will evaluate how different technical solutions (for producing and integrating music into interactive applications) affect the end result for different listeners.
  • I will focus on the challenges in the process of making (live) performed, traditional music for interactive applications rather than computer generated, experimental music.
  • I will continue building my interactive music framework to solve some yet unmet needs in this area.

    To begin with I really appraciate your reasearch!
    When I read your summurise about what you are suppose to do I noticed that you want to use traditionally music in modern technique, like computer games and viritual techniques like VR. My question is why do you think, traditionally Music are going to be used in future computergames and other media, don’t you think other computer music (like computer-based-music), are going to be more populare and more used compared to traditionally music? And how are you suppose to argument for the traditionally Music?

      It’s a very good question, Jonathan. To start with, I personally like a lot of the music that is created with computers and I enjoy both creating, playing and listening to music in genres that would have never existed if it wasn’t for the new technology.
      BUT…
      I think music is great for communication
      I think art made by humans for humans is a great deal of being human
      I think there is always room for different styles and expressions
      I think that technologies that has to deal with music performed by humans will add a dimension to technology intended for music made by computers

      I would argue that the current focus, both in research and the industry, is more on artificial intelligence and computer generated music than on music made by real musicians so I think there is a lot to do in that area.

    Good luck digging deeper:-)
