Abstract The University of California at Berkeley has established a new facility for music research, composition, performance, and education. The Center for New Music and Audio Technologies, CNMAT, provides a common ground for music and audio related research activities in the departments of music, electrical engineering and computer sciences (EECS), psychology, linguistics, and architecture. The facility will provide an environment consisting of music and audio workstations, acoustically isolated studios, and an experimental performance space. CNMAT specific projects include computer architectures for sound synthesis and processing, research on music perception and cognition, the development of new media resources for music scholarship and education, and the development of software and controllers for live performance computer music.
