The Music, Perception and Robotics Lab explores how musical creativity can be inspired and enhanced by technological tools and understanding of human auditory perception. We build robotic and mechatronic systems in order to explore expressive spaces that unique to machines, unique to humans, and are shared between the two. We conduct psychological research that examines human musical perception and creativity. We synthesize these efforts in projects where humans and machines interact in the context of art and psychological research to inspire and augment creativity and expressivity. As we embody and encode characteristics that we value, we recognize our technological and artistic experiments as fundamentally humanistic endeavors.
