Digital Creativity, Screen Media and Music Research Cluster
Members explore the relationships between music, digital creativity and screen media, using critical, ethnographic, historical and practice-based approaches.
Members have pioneered research into the sounds of early cinema, music in video games, and digital media in indigenous musics. The cluster's composers and performers use digital media to expand creative possibilities, including video scores, interactive multimedia in contemporary performance, virtual-reality opera, and new vocal technologies in theatre and dance. Addressing the importance of digital futures in the post-Covid world, their work is inherently interdisciplinary and includes collaborations with the Storyfutures project in the Department of Media Arts.
Members organise conferences including Hidden Figures of Screen Music and Sound, Listening Cinematically, and Desert Island Discs and the Discographic Self. They also co-edit the Journal of Sound and Music in Games, and take leading roles in the Society for the Study of Sound and Music in Games and Ludomusicology Research Group.
