Sound and Music Research in Padova

Sound and Music Computing Group

The Sound and Music Computing Group at the Department of Information Engineering - University of Padova has been active since the 1970's in scientific research, education, and dissemination of all the disciplines related to the application of new technologies to music and sound. Since the creation of the "Centro di Sonologia Computazionale" (the CSC), the activities of the group have always been based on an interdisciplinary approach through a close collaboration between researchers and musicians.
The Sound and Music Computing Group collaborates with many organizations, both at a national and international levels. Research activities include 3-D sound rendering, sound synthesis by physics-based models, auditory display and auditory feedback in multimodal interfaces, digital audio post-processing techniques, and analysis and modeling of expressive and emotional content in music performance interaction. Teaching activities include the course Informatica Musicale within the master degree in Ingegneria Informatica, supervision of PhD students with research projects in Sound and Music Computing, hosting of Erasmus students in collaboration with our european partners.
The staff is directed by Professor Giovanni De Poli.
