SOUND & MUSIC TECHNOLOGY LAB

ABOUT US

Located at the School of Music Studies of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the Sound & Music Technology Lab houses 170 square meter teaching and research facilities, including a 20-seat computer room, along with a medium-sized recording studio, and separate audio processing booth. This forms a collaborative space for both teaching and research in the fields of music technology and informatics, musical acoustics, phychoacoustics, music production, sound editing and processing, MIDI/audio sequencing, and multimedia in music education.
In 2018, Sound & Music Technology Lab partnered with the 1st Department of Otorhinolaryngology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AHEPA Hospital) and jointly established a research facility within the Cochlear Implantation Center at the same department, providing unique opportunities for interdisciplinary research on music perception of and training for individuals with hearing impairments and cochlear implant users.

WHAT WE DO

Three principal members of the lab discuss the different educational and research orientations of the SMT Lab, and the interdisciplinary culture we greatly promote in both domains.
