9 AM - 5 PM WHERE Abu Dhabi WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute By Invitation Interested scholars please contact

See March 18 and 21 for companion public events. Seeking to bridge the gap between theory and practice by including music and dance performances, this workshop provides a forum for an in-depth, cross-disciplinary review of expansive approaches to music analysis and modeling. Musical rhythm is investigated from four interlocking standpoints: music theory, musicology, and ethnomusicology; music modeling and computational approaches to music; music perception and cognition; and neuroscience.
