Designed to challenge the ways we think about and make music, the concert series of the Centre for Digital Music at Queen Mary University of London presents cross-cutting performances drawing upon ongoing research in the themes of music cognition, creativity, and expression, new interfaces and augmented instruments, music informatics, and audio engineering at C4DM.

Performances bring together art and music, giving a platform for original and innovative compositions utilising research creations from QMUL such as the magnetic resonator piano and augmented violin.

Activities through the concert series are separated into three streams:

The Classical Music stream, directed by pianist and operations researcher Professor Elaine Chew, offers boundary-crossing concerts juxtaposing classical music with C4DM technologies and other art forms.

The New Interfaces stream, directed by composer-violist and new instruments designer Dr Andrew McPherson showcases augmented instruments and interfaces developed at C4DM in concert.

The Fixed Media stream, directed by computer music composer and electrical and computer engineer Dr Bob Sturm highlights electro-acoustic compositions enhanced by digital music technologies.

Event listings, videos and images are all available on the c4dm concerts webpage here.
