About the Conference

About the Conference

Welcome to our website about the Future Directions of Music Cognition conference!


Each day will be centered around a central theme: corpus studies, emotion, pedagogy, rhythm & meter, and timbre.

The conference aims to connect music & science researchers from undergraduates through faculty.

“Future Directions” is part of the Music & Science Colloquium and Teaching Series (MASCATS), a symposium series at The Ohio State University led by Lindsay Warrenburg, Lindsey Reymore, and Daniel Shanahan.
