In the project »Design, Development and Dissemination of New Musical Instruments«, an interdisciplinary team of researchers and artists work on questions regarding the multitude of aspects of historical and contemporary electronic musical instruments. In close collaboration with international artists and in hands-on courses for students of the associated universities, prototypes of new musical instruments are developed. The emerging designs are evaluated regarding their versatility and expressiveness in artistic practice.
The project has the following sub-divisions
- History and Documention of Musical Instruments
- Open Development and Design
- Spatial Sound Control and Auralization
- The Embodiment Of Sound
