Audio competences

And Research fields

  • The vision underlying my research revolves around technology and culture: my main expertise is in the field of multimedia preservation, with a special attention for interactive systems. My scientific production includes recovery methods for magnetic tapes, information retrieval applications for digital audio collection, a philologically informed software kit for the digitisation of sound recordings, an ontology for interactive art.

    - Federica Bressan (Ghent University)

  • Traditional sound engineering is based on analogue decades-old architectures and workflows. Despite a near-total shift to digital systems, the layout and tasks have changed very little. But advanced audio signal processing and artificial intelligence could greatly improve the accessibility and efficiency of music producers, lowering the technical barriers currently interrupting the creative process.

    - Brecht De Man (Semantic Audio Labs)

  • I am a trained jazz musician, who likes to use algorithms for composition and performance.

    - Dago Sondervan (Musician and coder)
