The Centre for Digital Music (C4DM) is a world-leading multidisciplinary research group in the field of music and audio technology. In less than a decade, the Centre has grown to become the UKs leading Digital Music research group. We hold several substantial EPSRC Grants, including a platform grant, and a Doctoral Training Centre. Resources include our state-of-the-art Listening Room, and from 2010, the Space for Performance and Interaction, including 3D sound and video systems.
Our research into technologies for audio and music has a long and successful history, starting in 1978 with pioneering work on digital power amplification. Today, our work on music ontology (and using the Semantic web for music is blazing the trail. Our research covers music and audio technology from record/replay equipment in the home or studio, to the simulation and synthesis of instruments andvoices, acoustic spaces, music and audio understanding, delivery and retrieval. Our main areas are: music informatics, machine listening, audio engineering and interactional audio.
We have developed systems for automatic play-listing from personal collections for looking inside the audio (for automatically synchronising to a drummer for collaborative composition (DaisyPhone for iPhone), and many others. We regularly release algorithms under open source licenses. See our interactive art installations at and Vision
