Berlin Interdisciplinary Workshop on Timbre

There have been many important contributions to research on the auditory dimension of timbre from different viewpoints over the past five years, including small workshops at Telecom ParisTech and Harvard University. To create a multifaceted dialogue around timbre and assemble a comprehensive state of the art, a 2-day workshop will be held at the Berlin Musical Instrument Museum on 12 & 13 January 2017, bringing together young researchers and established scholars from the fields of psychology, cognitive neuroscience, musicology, and engineering.

The overall goal of this workshop is to forge collaborations across the different disciplines and discuss how these can help address challenges in our understanding of timbre from empirical, theoretical, and computational perspectives.

The workshop will be composed of 4 keynote addresses, 4 sessions with invited speakers, a round table discussion of related open issues with the aim of coming up with novel ideas to help guide future research, and a concert curated by the die Reihe. series.

Organized by Charalampos Saitis (Audio Communication Group, TU Berlin) and Kai Siedenburg (Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics, University of Oldenburg), in collaboration with Stefan Weinzierl (Audio Communication Group, TU Berlin) and Hans-Joachim Maempel (Federal Institute for Music Research). Funding has been provided by the German Reseach Foundation and the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation.
