#MusicBricks incubated team gets European funding

I expect you know someone who has some programming skills. Perhaps someone with a bit of experience with EEG brain-computer interfaces.

Yes, but what exactly ARE #MusicBricks?

We received an email from a singer-songwriter in Hawaii, asking exactly what the #MusicBricks “toolkit” is. How does it relate to performing or writing music? What exactly are the tools? Are they digital instruments of some kind? How can academic research contribute to excellent songwriting? All fair questions.

#MusicBricks is a collaboration between Stromatolite, Sigma-Orionis, Ircam-Centre Pompidou, Music Technology Group, Vienna University of Technology, and Fraunhofer IDMT
