Music and Performance

Research in Music and Performing Arts is mainly carried out by Birmingham Conservatoire, and a research profile is now developing in the Birmingham School of Acting.

At Birmingham Conservatoire research is focused in four areas: musicology, music technology, composition and performance.

Research at the Conservatoire aims to extend the agenda of musical creativity, in challenging assumptions surrounding the nature, content and presentation of new music, especially in terms of venue, subject-matter and audiences. Our work embraces both technology and innovative score-based and improvisational practices.



The Centre for Music and Performance 

The Centre for Music and Performance is the focal point of all research in this area.
