Description

Following Joseph Myers Distinguished Lecture on October 19th, on the future Music Multimedia Room acoustical (MMR) design, CIRMMT invites you to a "breakfast meeting" on Friday October 20th at 8:30am on the new MMR infrastructure and collaborations opportunities between CIRMMT members and external partners.

After a short presentation of the MMR acoustical design, audio-visual infrastructure and the research equipment pool, a showcase of future research at CIRMMT will be presented, followed by an open discussion. By presenting research projects enabled by the new MMR, we would like to spark a discussion with external partners that may be interested in establishing collaborations. Feel free to invite your colleagues and collaborators!

About CIRMMT

CIRMMT, Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology, is a multi-disciplinary research group that seeks to develop innovative approaches to the scientific study of music media and technology, to promote the application of newer technologies in science and the creative arts, and to provide an advanced research training environment. CIRMMT occupies a unique position on the international stage having developed intense research partnerships with other academic and research institutions, as well as diverse industry partners throughout the world.

About the new MMR

Over the coming year, CIRMMT will expand its research equipment pool with new, cutting-edge equipment such as 3D video acquisition and displays systems, a motion capture system and EEG wireless systems. Ongoing renovations will make the MMR a world-class laboratory-performance space for research in music, media and technology. Moveable acoustical treatments and an electronic acoustic enhancement system will allow for high-quality flexible and variable acoustic performances. A new rigging infrastructure will let researchers mount research equipment anywhere in the space. 

Funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI/Qc) and the Fonds de recherche du Québec, MMR renovations and equipment purchase is also part of a collaboration with Université de Montréal (UdeM) with the creation of an interconnected research hub linking the McGill MMR to UdeM’s concert hall Salle Claude Champagne.
