Electronic Media in the Arts and Science

In scientific research, the multimedia archives of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz shall be processed electronically and, as a consequence, they shall be opened up for musicological research. Subject to research in instrumental and vocal teaching are questions of motor learning by means of computer technology methods. The department of Sound and Music Computing mainly deals with research and development in the fields of Spatial Sound and Modulation of Sound, frequently also in close connection with arts-based research.

The eLearning activities at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz are found at an interface between teaching and scientific research. The use of eLearning in teaching of the arts far beyond the frequent application of electronic media in academic teaching is a new research domain which is supposed to be studied and developed academically also by concrete trial in teaching of various fields of study. The development of applications in music education for secondary schools shall be continued in the framework of third-party projects.
