Academic interests

Georgios' main research interests revolve around music perception and generation. He has worked extensively in the development of automatic rhythm generation algorithms and its applications, the modeling of syncopation and the study of the sensation of groove.

background

Georgios has published 20 articles in peer reviewed journals and international conferences. From 2010 until 2017, he was a member of the Sound and Music Computing Group of INESC-TEC in Porto. In 2016, he obtained a PhD from the University of Porto in Digital Media. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Physics from the University of Ioannina and a Master's degree in Technological Applications from the Technical University of Athens. In parallel, he studied classical piano and music theory at the "Athens Orfio" Conservatory.

Current Research

Project:  TIME: Timing and Sound in Musical Microrhythm

Musical rhythms often induce a pleasant desire to move or dance, a natural sway of our body and tap of our foot to the music that reflects and shape the way we listen to rhythms. Georgios is using the (spontaneous) body movement to probe the interaction between sound features at the micro level, such as temporal shape and timbre, and the perception of rhythm.
