 +
 +===== Spring 2005 =====
 +
 +==== Music Technology Moves to 550 Sherbrooke Street West! ====
 +
 +In April 2005, the Music Technology Area moved into its new spaces at 550 Sherbrooke Street West, 5th floor (East Tower), suite 500.
 +
 +Consisting of roughtly 700 square meters, the new spaces now host all staff offices and 6 full-fledged research laboratories (check the Resources link for more information).
 +
 +The Area's new address is:
 +
 +Music Technology - McGill University\\
 +550, Sherbrooke Street West\\
 +East Tower 5th Floor, Suite 500\\
 +H3A 1E3 Montreal, Qc\\
 +
 +
 +===== February 2005 =====
 +
 +==== (Other more) Recent Music Technology Grants! ====
 +
 +Three brand new grants that will fund equipment and research on music perception and cognition, computational acoustic modelling, and enactive interfaces:
 +
 +Prof. Stephen McAdams was awarded the Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Music Perception and Cognition, valued at $200,000/yr (2004-2011),​ the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) New Opportunities Fund, valued at $309,678 (2004-2005) and the McGill VP (Academic) start-up valued at $90,000. The title of the project is: Music Perception and Cognition. This research will involve the processing of complex acoustic information by human listeners in naturalistic settings with a particular focus on music: multisensory perception of dynamically behaving sound sources and listeners'​ inference of their causal origins, the cognitive dynamics of listening and implicit learning in real and virtual scenes.
 +
 +
 +Prof. Gary Scavone was awarded the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) New Opportunities Fund (2005-2009),​ valued at $438,508. The title of the 5-year project is: Measurement and Development Tools for Computational Acoustic Modeling of Music Instruments and Sounding Objects and will be held in the new Computational Acoustic Modelling Laboratory (CAML).
 +
 +Profs. Marcelo M. Wanderley and Philippe Depalle were awarded an MDERR (Ministere du Developpement Economique et Regional et de la Recherche - Province of Quebec) 3-year grant valued at $100,000 to support the participation of the Sound Processing and Control Laboratory in the European Research Project ENACTIVE Interfaces. ​
