Quebec music hub explores how musicians in large ensembles interact with each other, and also with their audience
September 20, 2016

Music is a way to connect to the people around us, and understanding how musicians interact with each other and with their audience is the foundation for finding new ways to perform and making those connections stronger. The Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology is a cutting-edge music and sound research centre that does just that. Located in downtown Montreal and run by McGill University, Université de Montréal  and Université de Sherbrooke, the centre is equipped with high-tech recording studios, audio laboratories, and a state-of-the-art music hall surrounded by wood panels shaped to enhance the acoustic experience. The music hub is headquarters to a multidisciplinary research community, where musicians, engineers, neuroscientists and other experts from different fields work together to breach the barrier of what we know about music, performance and sound.
