We are extending our collaboration between SARC (the Sonic Arts Research Centre at Queen’s University Belfast, led by Dr Franziska Schroeder) and DrakeMusicNI (led by Dr Michelle McCormack) to work with two industry facing partners: Farset Labs Belfast and The Ulster Orchestra, Belfast
Together we aim to identify improved ways in which music technology can afford the inclusion of disabled musicians into mainstream music making practices. Our research brings together abled and disabled musicians using bespoke technology - designed, tested and built through our partnership.
Dr Schroeder secured a prestigious UK research council funded PhD studentship (an AHRC NPIF award http://www.northernbridge.ac.uk/studentships/npif/) , which is at the heart of this project. The award, made in October 2017, went to Alex Lucas, a former product designer working in industry.
