SEADOM talk on Music and Health - with presentation link available

I am honored to be one of two speakers talking at the SEADOM (Southeast Asia Directors of Music) 2021 conference, titled "Music and well-being: Perspectives from Musician Practitioners, Music Therapy, and Music Medicine." My talk will focus on two recent projects; the first focuses on a survey study of the recent experiences of music therapists around the world, and their use of technology, during COVID-19. The second project revolves around a music-based Brain Computer Interface (BCI) system being developed for emotion regulation in listeners.

Lorentz workshop on 'Music, Computing, and Health' next week!

Next week is the culmination of almost a year of planning and organizing: our Lorentz workshop on 'Music, Computing, and Health' will take place in Leiden, the Netherlands, from 4-8 March! (Organizers: Kat Agres, Rebecca Schaefer, Anja Volk, and Susan van Hooren)
We will focus on ideation and future creation of music technologies for healthcare and well-being, drawing from music cognition, computing, music information retrieval (MIR), music therapy, and medical technology. I'm very excited to see what this diverse group discusses and produces. :)
