A space for innovation, research, and performance

The Tavel Center explores frontiers of music and multimedia in the fine arts, education, computer science, informatics and engineering.

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.
