Research internship at the MTG
The MTG offers a part-time research internship (beca de colaboración) for a period of six months to work within a research project dedicated to the development of an educational web portal of classical music (

The goal of the internship is to build a music visualization system within a web infrastructure. The system should automatically generate a video from an audio recording based on a set of descriptors which are automatically computed with MTG technologies. These descriptors are related to the score of the piece and the instruments playing it. This video should be shown on the web, but the generation of the video could be performed off-line. (References: Music Animation Machine, MAM Player)

The internship is for 3 hours a day and a salary of 450€/month. Interested students should send their CV to alba [dot] rosado [at] upf [dot] edu
