I'm back from the 139th AES convention in New York City, where I was presenting three papers (on timbral metering, biomedical musification, and affective vocal analysis, respectively). It was a great conference with lots of interesting work going on, including fascinating discussions with colleagues from the UK (a growing, diverse, and exciting amount of research is now coming from our side of the pond), as well as the USA and of course the rest of the world. If we met at AES and discussed possible collaborations please don't hesitate to get in touch with me (details on the contact page of my site).
The BCMI-MIdAS project are pleased to announce a new journal publication in Brain and Cognition, titled "Music-induced emotions can be predicted from a combination of brain activity and acoustic features", in which a combination of acoustic and neurophysiological features are used to attempt to predict music-induced emotion.
The article can be viewed via science direct from 3rd November 2015.
Term time is now in full swing for me so updates might be slow until Christmas but there are a lot of exciting things in the pipeline so stop back soon.
Thanks for visiting!
