(Note on September 21, 2012: This is largely an archival site, where the rich variety of programs sponsored by NTSMB from 2001-2010 may be viewed. NTSMB was the exploratory network founded in 2001 with two years' worth start-up funding from the Danish Council for Research in the Humanities and in which JMM, NNIMIPA and the present program/site, The Aesthetics of Music and Sound, all have their origins.)

PLEASE NOTE: During the month of March 2015 and possibly extending into April/May 2015, heavy construction will be taking place on this website behind the scenes as it "migrates" to new editing software. Please be patient with us during this period if occasionally some pages take on a strange appearance, or if updating seems to be a bit erratic. All efforts will be made to maintain the integrity of the page with the schedule for the seminar series Topics in the Aesthetics of Music and Sound: Mostly Metal here, but it will nevertheless be a good idea also to keep an eye on our Facebook group here and the regularly occurring announcements of events on it during this period. Thank you for your patience!

     During March-May 2015 we will also continue to develop our new

channel, which we encourage you to visit here.
