The IUPUI Music Performance Technologies Lab is a consortium of work by faculty members Dr. Robin Cox, Dr. Jason Palamara, and Mr. Jordan Munson. Research involves performance practice in acoustic and electronic techniques and technologies. These efforts are housed within the Department of Music and Arts Technology, Purdue School of Engineering and Science at Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis.
The research of this group, led by faculty members Dr. Robin Cox, Dr. Jason Palamara, and Mr. Jordan Munson, investigates cross-sections of live acoustic and electronic performance techniques and technologies. In any given semester, upwards of 50 students are involved with these efforts. The work is primarily driven by experimentation within four units, the Electro-Acoustic Ensemble (E/A), the Destructive and Inventive Systems Ensemble (DISEnsemble), the Electronic Music Ensemble (ExME), and the BIG TENT multimedia project. Areas of investigation include on-stage monitoring technology, digital signal methodology, live mix techniques in combination of acoustic and electronic sources, hardware interface design, DAW integration with large ensemble performance, and multichannel audio production. The consortium also extends its work into assimilation of visual mediums with the performance practices above.
