Music + Innovation

Exploring how technology and innovation are impacting music, musicians, and cultural systems

Creating a Better Future for Music Together 


Please join us in our work toward the Center's missing and objectives:

The Center's Mission

To explore how members of the many music communities can work together to build more robust music futures -- with central focus on how technology and innovation are impacting music and cultural systems now and across the next 5 years

Our Main Objectives

  1. To create and share research about drivers and impacts of tech-enabled music innovation and how they impact social/society/structural change,
  2. To connect and engage with diverse communities around these questions from different points of view, and
  3. To connect these questions with the the university -- spurring and expanding our core work inside HASoM (research and education) and connecting richly with the outside worlds (community and collaboration).

Our Three Core Directions

  • Research – collaborative work between faculty, graduate students, and fellows; action research with teachers, schools, and industry (see initial faculty lists below)

  • Education -- expanding opportunities with the HASoM Music Industry Program, summer institutes, and continuing education  

  • Community/Collaboration -- podcasts, events, forums, conferences, and engagement with our Music Innovation Advisory Council
