Open music research between art and science by Dr Alexander Refsum Jensenius
27 October 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm BST
About the speaker
Alexander Refsum Jensenius is Professor of music technology at the University of Oslo and Director of the RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion. His research focuses on why music makes us move, which he explores through empirical studies using different motion-sensing technologies. He also uses analytical knowledge and tools to create new music with both traditional and very untraditional instruments. These are presented in his upcoming book Sound Actions: Conceptualizing Musical Instruments (MIT Press, 2022).
About the talk
Many music researchers are turning towards studying music performance and perception in real-world settings. Collecting data in a concert situation is non-trivial, and FAIRifying the data is even more challenging. In this talk, I will discuss some challenges with handling privacy and copyright matters in music research. I will also discuss some benefits of working towards more open music research.
