Our Music Technology research draws on expertise in Computer Music, Digital Signal Processing and Electroacoustic Composition and is coupled with excellent facilities in the dedicated music technology lab, making study at Maynooth University popular among students from a variety of backgrounds.

As well as being accomplished composers in electroacoustic and computer music, staff are also authors of some of the main reference books in this field. In addition, they co-lead the Csound software development team, a software composition tool originally developed in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA), one of the global leaders in music technology.

Given the sizeable experience which has been accrued among the staff, Music Technology research at Maynooth University has organically become interdisciplinary with frequent collaborations between staff and researchers in Computer Science and Composition, as well as forging impressive links with a number of European and American institutions.
