Science in Music Symposium

Event Details

This event finished on 07 June 2017


The Music Science and Technology Research Cluster invite you to their 2-day symposium featuring all taught masters students on the Music Production, Sound Recording and Psychology of Music pathways. These subjects have a great deal of overlap and the benefit each discipline can afford the other is often underestimated; as such, this symposium is one of the first times this has been embraced.

The symposium, spread across the mornings of Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th of June, is an opportunity for students on the aforementioned courses to discuss, present and explore their topics of study as well as being a chance to disseminate and share their knowledge and research.
