The Interactive Music Systems Lab (IMSLab) explores opportunities for research, innovation, and education through the development of new technology used to facilitate music composition, performance, and education. The lab is part of the research of V.J. Manzo, Associate Professor of Music at WPI and Principal Investigator (PI). The efforts of the IMSLab, therein, include collaborations with faculty, research affiliates, and other key personnel as well as external professional musicians and innovators from industry.
The types of projects regularly explored in the lab include tech-based musical instruments, immersive musical experiences, music games, and interactive and immersive software for desktop and mobile platforms.
We are always looking to collaborate with new project sponsors. TheIMSLab works with individual artists, non-profits, and companies to explore areas of specialized interest and develop new technology. These projects also present opportunities for students to gain real-world experience under advisement of the lab at PI. Please get in touch!
