General Project Information

  • Leader: Steve Brewer, EGI.eu
  • Mailing List: sound-music-computing@mailman.egi.eu
  • Status: active
  • Start Date: 16/12/2011
  • End Date: 16/12/2012
  • Meetings: see dedicated page


EGI has an overall goal of bringing more users to the infrastructure. Having identified packets of activity in the computational musicology, sound and music computing area it was proposed that we investigate how the collective or at least common needs of this community could best be met. This could encompass the following areas:

  • sound and music computing requiring distributed or large scale resources
  • computational musicology, large scale data analysis
  • acoustic modelling and synthesis


The expected outputs of this project are:

  • the creation of a vibrant Virtual Research Community (VRC) to discuss and identify infrastructure requirements
  • a collection of easily available resources and services on the infrastructure for researchers in this area


The following tasks will need to be undertaken in order to achieve this:

  1. creation of a mailing list and wiki page to coordinate information - done (16/12/2011)
  2. a kick-off meeting to bring interested parties together - Amsterdam, spring 2012 proposed
  3. a selection of proof of concept demonstrators of EGI-based research applications connecting grid, cloud and potentially HPC resources
