radcliffe fellows

We, Elaine Chew and Alexandre François, are 2007-2008 Science Fellows at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, where we form a research cluster on Analytical Listening Through Interactive Visualization. Our goal is to make discerning listening of music accessible by offering interactive visualizations of musical structures, captured and analyzed from music streams in real-time, with focus on contemporary compositions. This page documents our activities and events at the Radcliffe Institute.
