project: Landscape/Cityscape

Investigation into the roles of Art in Public Spaces including the Internet by means of applying the metonym 'Landscape/Cityscape' to the production of art. The work was intended to engage with debates about art in public places and offer new possibilities of looking at landscape. Eventually there emerged three main developments within the project: one that followed the plan towards a portable landscape laid out in the original Fellowship proposal; one in relation to internet- and computer-based works of art; and one that followed a philosophical dimension relating to fluid conditions.

project: Reanimating cultural heritage: digital repatriation, knowledge networks and civil society strengthening in post-conflict Sierra Leone

This multidisciplinary project is concerned with innovating 'digital curatorship' in relation to Sierra Leonean collections dispersed in the global museumscape. Extending research in anthropology, museum studies, informatics and beyond, the project considers how objects that have become isolated from the oral and performative contexts that originally animated them can be reanimated in digital space alongside associated images, video clips, sounds, texts and other media, and thereby given new life.

project: Centre for the History and Analysis of Recorded Music

Aims to promote the study of music as performance through a specific focus on recordings. Its activities include a major discographic project, seminars and research projects. Traditionally, music has been studied as a text reproduced in performance - almost as if it were an obscure kind of literature. By placing performance at the centre of musicology - by promoting a musicology based on recordings and not just scores - CHARM aims to reduce the gulf between musicology and the listener.

eventresources: Modern Methods for Musicology

A Methods Network expert seminar hosted by Tim Crawford, Department of Computing, Goldsmiths College, University of London.

This seminar explored the ways in which information and communication technology can be used to enhance research, teaching and learning in musicology, including fields such as music theory, analysis and performance analysis and traditional historical musicology. Presentations and discussions provided a picture of the realities of how ICT is currently being used in musicology as well as prospects and proposals for how it could be fruitfully used in the future.
