We are the Music Technology Group

passionate about sound and music

The Music Technology Group (MTG) of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, part of its Department of Engineering, carries out research on topics such as audio signal processing, music information retrieval, musical interfaces, and computational musicology. The MTG wants to contribute to the improvement of the information and communication technologies related to sound and music, carrying out competitive research at the international level and at the same time transferring its results to society. To that goal, and guided by our values, the MTG aims at finding a balance between basic and applied research while promoting interdisciplinary approaches that incorporate knowledge and methodologies from both scientific/technological and humanistic/artistic disciplines.

To learn about our current research, projects, or developed software and datasets, go to the Research section. If you are interested in knowing about technologies being licensed, or initiatives to promote industrial collaborations, visit the Industry section. For information about our education programs including pre and postgraduate education, visit the Education section. For outreach activities including creative and music-related initiatives, community resources, or dissemination, visit the Outreach section. You can also contact us for any other information about the MTG.

A good overview can be obtained from the event we organized to celebrate our 25th anniversary, the BCN Music Technology Forum, which included talks, posters, demos, and live music, from past and current members of the MTG.
