+ About SCRG

The Sonic Communications Research Group (SCRG) at the University of
Canberra offers a unique environment for postgraduate and post-doctoral
research in music imagery, music cognition, sound art theory and
practice, sonification, auditory perception, and sonic writing.

Members of SCRG are currently researching questions such as:
- How do we communicate with sound?
- How does sound represent information, and help us perceive and
interpret complex data?
- How does sound induce affect?
- How do creative sound practices operate in contemporary culture?
- How can computers assist sound in media generation for creative and
commercial purposes?
- How do sound, text and image inter-relate in new media?
- How does text communicate when sounded, versus in other contexts?
- How is sound represented?

SCRG has an unusual array of expertise in cultural theory, musicology,
empirical cognitive studies, sonification, auditory information and
interface design, and creative practice in sound and new media with
computer mediation in live performance.
