UCL does not have a dedicated department of musicology, but it has a great wealth of UCL academics working on and with music in a wide range of disciplines - be it in literature, history, philosophy, technology, law, cognitive neuroscience, fine arts or elsewhere. Music Futures aims to foster a new cluster of scholarship and creativity in this space. This includes research about music as well as research qua creative or performative practice. To this end, we also draw in musicians, composers and performers external to UCL.
The initiative culminated in the Music Futures Festival in June 2022, but it will not end here. Initially planned just for the Academic Year 2021-22, the initiative will now carrying on in 2022-23, and our aim is for it to have a lasting impact.
