Joris Grouwels (PhD)

Operatic baritone and engineer. With his MUSAiC focus on analysis and criticism, he wonders how human and artificial musical agents together could tell meaningful stories. He wants to contribute to Ai systems that ally with artists, citizens and society rather than with exploitative business models.

André Holzapfel (affiliated)

Associate Professor of Media Technology at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. His expertise lies in the areas of Music Information Retrieval and Ethnomusicology, and current research projects focus on historically informed design of musical instruments, and on mapping future application scenarios of creative Ai.

Oded Ben-Tal (affiliated)

A composer with interests in creative research and technologically enabled creativity. He is a Senior Lecturer in Music at Kingston University. 

Mattias Sköld (affiliated)

Senior Lecturer in Composition at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and a PhD candidate in Sound and Music Computing at KTH. Current research projects focus on the notation of sound for computer-assisted composition and transcription. 

Luca Casini (visited Fall 2021)

Passionate musician and PhD candidate at University of Bologna, interested in human-centric application of deep learning.

Marco Amerotti (visited Fall 2021)

Computer Science student,  musician and composer. Interested in combining computer Science with music, linguistics and art.

Shoogee Nulnul (postdog)

Excels at fetching balls, explosive fits of running, and boosting everyone’s morale.


MUSAiC is a project that has received funding from the European Research Council under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (Grant agreement No. 864189).
