The Tavel Lab is the working and activity space on the IUPUI campus for the Donald Tavel Arts and Technology Research Center. The Center explores frontiers of music and multimedia in the fine arts, education, computer science, informatics and engineering. As Tavel Center’s associates collaborate in these areas, new modes of creative thought and expression emerge. Music technology graduate students benefit by working directly with research faculty on new technologies. Since 2007, the Tavel Center has developed new areas of networked performance, software, machine learning, computer interactivity, instrument design, media enrichment, and best music-media performance practices. The Tavel Center’s accomplishments include creation and presentation telematic art to audiences worldwide, publication of music, hosting of music tech symposia, and creation of hardware and software. The work of the Tavel Center has been presented in museums, art galleries, festivals, and concert halls throughout the world, and its work has been chronicled in publications internationally. Former Tavel Center students have gone onto positions in academia, industry, the performing stage, and research.
The Department of Music and Arts Technology currently offers BS, MS and Ph.D in Music Technology degrees. Graduate students in these disciplines benefit by working directly with multi-disciplinary research faculty on new technologies through the work of the Tavel Center. The Music Therapy program in the department offers a BS, MS, and Ph.D. in Music Therapy as well as a BS and Music Education degree in collaboration with Butler University.
