CIRMMT Receives SSHRC funding to participate in Integra project

March 04, 2006

The Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music, Media and Technology has received funding from the International Opportunities Fund of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.

This support will enable CIRMMT to participate in the European Commission funded Integra Project, a research/creation project involving professional ensembles, research institutions and production centres from throughout Europe.  The Integra Project focusses on music with live electronics and involves the commissioning and performing of new works, the development of a new environment for the composition of these works and the modernization of important works from the repertoire that use obsolete technologies. CIRMMT (the only non-European full member of Integra) will participate in all research and artistic activities of the project. The application for funding was made by Sean Ferguson, Associate Director of CIRMMT and coordinator of artistic activities, along with Stephen McAdams, Director of CIRMMT, and Marcelo Wanderley, Associate Director and coordinator of scientific activities.
