The Nordic Sound and Music Computing Network (Nordic SMC) brings together a group of internationally leading sound and music computing researchers from all five Nordic countries, from Aalborg University (AAU), Aalto University (AALTO), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), University of Iceland (UoI), and University of Oslo (UiO).
The constellation is unique in that the network covers the field of sound and music from the "soft" to the "hard," including the arts and humanities, the social and natural sciences, and with a high level of technological competency.
Sound and music computing (SMC) is a research field that studies the whole sound and music communication chain from a multidisciplinary point of view. By combining scientific, technological and artistic methodologies it aims at understanding, modeling and generating sound and music through computational approaches.
