Talk at Durham University

November 14th at 4:33pm

At last.... I am ready for the first blog on this site. The residency has started, the website has gone live and the first public event took place this past Tuesday when I gave a talk on previous work influenced by music and work currently in development at the Durham University Music Department. This led to an interesting discussion at the end on whether computers can really detect emotion, whether the machine learning is different in the case of one instrument or several and whether music is abstract or not. Thanks to all who attended and joined the discussion and to Durham University for hosting the event.

Now don't forget to take the research survey on this site please. Your opinion on the emotional expression of abstract graphics will directly influence the public performances planned for February and March 2015. Simply click te participate button on the right. It will take you about ten minutes and is fully anonymous. file

The research project needs your help!
