MTG (Universitat Pompeu Fabra)

Syndicate content
The Music Technology Group (MTG) of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra of Barcelona, part of its Department of Information and Communication Technologies and of its Audiovisual Institute, is specialized in sound and music computing. With more than 40 researchers coming from different and complementary disciplines, the MTG carries out research on topics such as sound processing and synthesis; music content description; interactive music systems; computational models of perceptual and music cognition; and the technologies related with music social networks. The MTG wants to contribute to the improvement of the technologies related to sound and music communication, carrying out competitive research at the international level and at the same time transferring its results to society. To that goal, the MTG aims at finding a balance between basic and applied research and at the same time promotes interdisciplinary approaches that incorporate knowledge from both scientific/technological and humanistic/artistic disciplines. The MTG was created in 1994 by its current director, Dr. Xavier Serra, as one of the research groups of the Audiovisual Institute of the UPF.
