Research and Development

O projecto Interface Digital da Arte Portuguesa no Século XX (IDAPS-20) tem como objectivo a constituição de um Sistema de Informação sobre as Artes em Portugal no século XX, de acesso livre, em linha. Pretende-se que o repositório de dados daí resultante forneça informação pertinente e certificada sobre artistas e suas produções, sobre espaços de arte e cronologias da Arte e sobre bibliografia e outros media, disponibilizando ferramentas de consulta e de pesquisa de forma a que no final, os investigadores, os especialistas e os estudiosos que vierem a usá-la possam formular novas leituras da Arte Portuguesa do Século XX. A sua maior ambição é contribuir para a integração de sistemas de informação artística em vigor ou em preparação nos países lusófonos.

The SoundDataMining project developed the technology for the intelligent analysis of information and presentation of results (sonification and visualization techniques). The technology developed was applied to a case study in the area of air quality monitoring. The forecast of the air quality index was developed at one day’s distance (sulphur, ozone, particles and nitrogen). This forecast is made available to end users via mobile telephones.

‘Building Bridges to the Community’ aimed to create and offer professional development opportunities in the media, multimedia and graphic design areas, with a European dimension. Assuming the need to actively involve adult students and other with reduced access in this domain, the network promoted effective support for the process. The specificity of the network is that it consists of small-scale educational institutions in small countries with impact in its regions.

This project aims to objectively analyze the gesture of percussion performance and deeply understand its narrative content. Previous research has shown a strong correlation between gesture, sound and musical perception. Investigators concluded that the visual component in musical performance has influence in the communication and relationship between the performers and their audience, interfering on musicality and expressivity. In a communicative character and sensorial contents wise, the music becomes before gesture a complete narrative.
