MusicMuni Labs Private Limited is a spinoff from Music Technology Group, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain . It takes roots from CompMusic project and the follow-up CAMUT project . The company is incorporated and located in Bengaluru, India.
CompMusic is a research project funded by the European Research Council (ERC grant agreement 267583) and coordinated by Prof. Xavier Serra from the Music Technology Group of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain. It aims to advance in the automatic description of music by emphasising cultural specificity, carrying research within the field of music information processing with a domain knowledge approach. The project focused on five music traditions of the world: Hindustani (North India), Carnatic (South India), Turkish-makam (Turkey), Arab-Andalusian (Maghreb), and Beijing Opera (China). The work on Hindustani and Carnatic music is conducted in collaboration with a team in IIT-M, lead by Prof. Hema Murthy, and a team in IIT-B, lead by Prof. Preeti Rao.
Building on the technology outcomes of the CompMusic project, the CAMUT follow-up technology transfer grant allowed us to develop prototype products tailored to suit India’s economic and sociocultural context. MusicMuni Labs is the spinoff created in India to take this forward and develop viable business around these technologies and prototypes.
To catalyse and scale the music education and infotainment domains in ways accessible by and affordable to masses, by synergising the pedagogical knowledge with artificial intelligence, with a particular emphasis on learner engagement and automated evaluation.
