Laboratorio di Informatica Musicale
InfoMus Lab, founded in 1984 at DIST-University of Genova, carries out scientific research and systems development on innovative multimedia and multimodal human-computer interfaces in performing art, museum, audience and spectators interfaces, therapy and rehabilitation. A main research focus is on the understanding and exploitation of non-verbal expressive gestures, by means of cross-fertilisation of scientific and artistic research. InfoMus Lab develops multimedia systems and platforms (e.g., HARP, EyesWeb) and applications (e.g., VideoBrain), and participates to artistic productions (e.g., with Luciano Berio at Salzburg Festival and Teatro la Scala of Milan) where systems and research results are applied and validated. Since 1997, InfoMus Lab has a contract with the opera house of Genova Teatro Carlo Felice which includes a lab site at the theatre and joint activities.
