IPEM - systematic musicology
IPEM is a research center in musicology, directed by Prof. dr. Marc Leman. The center's focus is on embodied music cognition and expressive interaction with music, such as listening, performing, conducting, dancing, sporting, and physical rehabilitation.
Interdisciplinary methods are developed based on music theory, performer-inspired analysis, advanced behavioural and neuroscience empirical experimentation, statistics, and computer modelling. At IPEM music-based feedback systems are created, for applications in domains such as music education, rehabilitation, sports activities, and arts. Cutting-edge artistic research (by artists) linked with its scientific leadership is highly supported.
