CompMusic seminars in Turkey

In the last two weeks of February 2016, the CompMusic team is giving seminars in three art schools and three engineering schools in Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey. These seminars will overview the research being done in the CompMusic project with an emphasis on the work related to Turkish makam music. The presentations in the art schools will target a non-technical audience and demonstrate the outputs of our research to musicians and conservatory students, whereas the presentations in the engineering schools will focus on the technical overview of the computational analysis, description and retrieval methodologies applied on Turkish makam music and demonstrations of the computational tools and applications from a music technology perspective.

The seminars are free and open to the public.
