Faculty of Music


Cambridge’s Centre for Music and Science has since its foundation in 2003 led research in the empirical study of music as a fundamental human behaviour, and acts as a hub for a vibrant community of resident and visiting scholars. Our research expertise in this area also spans the history of technologies of sound and listening, and cutting-edge projects in digital musicology.
