NNIMIPA: Nordic Network for the Integration of Music Informatics, Performance and Aesthetics (www.nnimipa.org)
The Aesthetics of Music and Sound has been part of a formalized cooperation with other research institutions in Sweden and Finland since 2007 when NNIMIPA: The Nordic Network for the Integration of Music Informatics, Performance and Aesthetics (www.nnimipa.org) officially became a network under NordPlus. Norway joined the network in 2009, and as of the fall of 2010, when NNIMIPA became a network under NordForsk, Iceland also became a member, bringing all five Nordic countries into NNIMIPA. For a list of participating institutions, please see here.
Prior to its official affiliation with NNIMIPA, fruitful cooperation with Iceland was established during the spring of 2010, with activities taking place in both Bifröst and Reykjavik.
From the fall of 2010 through mid-2014, NNIMIPA was a funded research network under NordForsk. At the conclusion of the NordForsk grant, www.nnimipa.org became an archival site that provides extensive documentation of the activities within NNIMIPA 2007-2014. The contacts that were established among researchers in the Nordic area and beyond through NNIMIPA have resulted in myriad cooperative research efforts. A significant number of these efforts continue to develop and are documented here on www.soundmusicresearch.org.

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.
