Nordic Network for the Integration of

Music Informatics, Performance and Aesthetics

 

NNIMIPA: Nordic Network for the Integration of Music Informatics, Performance and Aesthetics aims at shedding new light upon  traditional and contemporary questions within music research employing approaches which regard music from a vantage point where information and communication are the focal points, aided by the tools under rapid development within information technology, practice-based research and the new perspectives arising within aesthetics as a result of new technologies for studying and producing music.

 

NNIMIPA was officially established during the 2007-2008 academic year, when funding provided by the University of Southern Denmark at Odense was matched by Nordplus in order to establish this Nordic cooperative initiative. Nordplus continued to provide funding for NNIMIPA activities held during the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 academic years in the form of grants which were matched by the participating institutions. NNIMIPA became a research network under NordForsk (www.nordforsk.org) on September 1, 2010, with funding during 2010-2013. The decision to award the grant was made by the director of NordForsk following an evaluation carried out by a panel of independent experts.

 

www.nnimipa.org was launched on February 23, 2010 as a central site for disseminating information about NNIMIPA and for documenting the activities of the network since its inception in 2007.

 

For a list of participating NNIMIPA institutions, coordinators and committees, please see HERE. 

 

 

 

Book Release: November 11. 2010 was the release date for the print version of Music, Movement, Performance & Perception: Perspectives on Cross-Disciplinary Research and Teaching within NNIMIPA - Nordic Network for the Integration of Music Informatics, Performance and Aesthetics.
