• Project Title: What's Popping? Exploring the Impact of New Technology on Contemporary Popular Music throughout the 20th and 21st Century

  • BASIS Advisor: Raul Rivera Pun

  • Internship Location: NYU

  • Onsite Mentor: Dr. Jean-Claude

Have you ever wondered how we got to the genres of music we love right now? How has electronic music emerged to the mainstream scene, and what technologies have prompted this to happen? In my senior research project I will be attempting to answer these questions by analyzing past research on the impacts of contemporary music technology over both the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. I will be working remotely with my on-site mentor Dr. Jean-Claude Franchitti of New York University. Dr. Franchitti focuses on research in the fields of artificial intelligence and cloud computing, and I will work with him in integrating this with my music side of research.
