The Acoustics and Audio Group at the University of Edinburgh currently consists of six academic staff and four postgraduate students. It is mainly associated with the School of Music, but has a strong connection to the School of Physics and Astronomy, where most Group members are based.
The Group has strong local research links within the University, including with medicine, mechanical engineering and electric engineering. UK-wide there are associations with the Open University, the University of York’s Audio Lab, the University of Stirling, the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) and the University of Cambridge.
Please head over to the Research pages for an overview of current and past research topics, including a list of Publications from the group. Further details can be found by reading about the research interests of the individual Group Members.
A key part of the Acoustics and Audio Group is the MSc in Acoustics and Music Technology. This exciting one-year taught Masters degree provides a broad-based foundation in the technical, musical and multimedia applications of acoustics and audio technology. The program has run successfully since 2006, and there is a decicated part of the website for it here.
A regular seminar series is jointly hosted by the Acoustics and Audio Group (on behalf of the School of Music) and the School of Informatics. There is a website for the series, including a video archive of past seminars, located here.
