Artistic and research activity
The Chair’s research area includes a wide range of topics concerned with musical acoustics, psychoacoustics, methodology of sound quality assessment, room acoustics, acoustics, and methodology of timbral ear-training. The artistic activity of the Chair members manifests itself in a variety of projects concerned with the production of electroacoustic music, sound projection and the application of multimedia technology in art. An annual artistic event called the Multimedia Spring Picnic, organized since 2011 at the Chopin University of Music is a presentation of audio installations, virtual reality projects, audio-visual and performative art. The Chair members also participate in multimedia exhibitions, such as the WRO Media Art Biennale and have been involved in the production of artistic events of the Warsaw Autumn International Festival of Contemporary Music.
