Selected projects

  • „Lullabyte": In the Lullabyte project, the effect of lullabies on sleep will be examined combining methods from neuroscience, machine learning and musicology.

    PIs: Jun.-Prof. Dr. Miriam Akkermann (TU Dresden), Prof. Dr. Martin Dresler (Donders Institute / Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen), Prof. Dr. Dirk Pflüge (Stuttgart University).

  • „Play it again": In this project the concept of (historically informed) performance practice is examined, asking for structures or inherent guidelines that form performance practices of certain musical styles in the 21st century. Observed examples derive hereby from early Baroque music as well as early Mixed Music.
