Pixellating Project Showcase: Modeling Polyrhythmic Experience: An Introduction to Music Research in the Digital Era

Pixellating is a monthly Digital Humanities (DH) mixer. It is an opportunity for DH scholars and students from across campus to meet colleagues, talk tools, brainstorm ideas and network with others who use digital tools to explore and visualize their research. This month we will be featuring a project showcase with time for a Q&A afterward.

This project showcase will introduce research on polyrhythmic experience in notated European and North-American music composed between 1877 and 1969. A special focus of the presentation will be on digital tools for metadata and music data visualization and the benefits of digital scholarship within and outside of academia. Special guests will include members of the UBC Rhythm Computation and Cognition Lab as well as project collaborator Craig Sapp (CCARH/PHI Stanford University).
