Thor Magnusson

I am a Professor of Future Music at the University of Sussex. I have recently taken up the role of leading the Music Department at the university. I also convene the new BA in Music Technology degree, which I designed when I took up my current post. At Sussex I lead the Experimental Music Technologies Lab  (www.emutelab.org) - an interdisciplinary research lab, which connects the departments of Music and Informatics. I supervise seven PhD students in areas of music and new media. I was the PI of an AHRC-funded Live Coding Research Network, and I have recently completed two years as an AHRC Leadership Fellow, working on the Sonic Writing research project (www.sonicwriting.org). I am a member of the Sussex Humanities Lab  (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/shl/). Since 2014, I have been the external examiner for the Creative Music Technology course at Falmouth University. I am a member of the AHRC Peer Reviewer College, and I regularly review research bids for the EPSRC, NWO (the Dutch Research Council), and DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service). I’m on the editorial board of the International Journal of Performance Arts and Digital Media and I co-chair the International Conference of Live Coding and the International Conference on Live Interfaces. I am a scientific committee member for the xCoAx conference and the International  Conference on Computational Creativity. I regularly peer review for journals and conferences, such as: Organised Sound, Computer Music Journal, New Music Research, as well as NIME, ICMC, SMC, xCoAx, ICLC.
