Dr. Matthew Woolhouse, Assistant Professor of Music Cognition and Music Theory at McMaster University, founded the Digital Music Lab at McMaster in association with the UK-based download, live-stream music service MixRadio. His research explores music downloading, the prosocial effects of dance, music and dance for the palliative treatment of people with Parkinson’s, and musical pitch perception. His work is published in a number of leading journals, including Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, Psychology of Music, Digital Studies, Music Theory Spectrum, Empirical Musicology Review, and Journal of New Music Research. He is the recipient of numerous awards and grants, including three major Canadian Tri-Council grants awarded in 2012 and 2015. Prior to his arrival at McMaster, he was a Research Fellow in Cognitive Musicology at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge, UK.
In this talk, Dr. Woolhouse explains how he used the technology in the LIVELab to create a tool for Parkinson’s patients to use in their homes.
