Current Research

Adrian is current engaged on the Fusing Semantic and Audio Technologies for Intelligent Music Production and Consumption (FAST) EPSRC project (EP/L019981/1). The project brings the very latest technologies to bear on the complete industry, end-to-end, producer to consumer, making the production process more fruitful, the consumption process more engaging, and the delivery and intermediation more automated and robust. It addresses 3 premises: (i) that Semantic Web technologies should be deployed throughout the content value chain from producer to consumer; (ii) that advanced signal processing should be employed in the content production phases to extract "pure" features of perceptual significance and represent these in standard vocabularies; (iii) that this combination of semantic technologies and content-derived metadata leads to advantages (and new products and services) at many points in the value chain, from recording studio to end-user (listener) devices and applications.

A key focus of Adrian's research is in interactive, or adaptive, music for walking experiences. This includes compositional methods for the creation of original music and the re-purposing of existing music.
