Goldsmiths Computing is unusual in that a large portion of academic staff have arts practices as well as interests in computer science. The two are frequently and tightly interwoven into our research practices and for nearly 20 years, Goldsmiths Computing research has centred on interdisciplinary practice focusing on technology in the Arts. The Department produces artworks and software tools for studying and producing arts.


Research Highlights 

Prof Tim Crawford is the UK PI for TROMPA, a H2020 collaborative research project. This is a nine partner consortium of research partners across Europe,. The project aims to enrich and democratise our publicly available musical heritage through a user-centred co-creation setup.

For analysing and linking music data at scale, the project will employ and improve state-of-the-art technology. Music-loving citizens (including the large scene of amateur performers) will cooperate with the technology, giving feedback on algorithmic results, and annotating the data according to their personal expertise.
