Survey on Cyber Music Performance

The project partners are also conducting a survey to collect data that will help it forecast possible future outcomes in the area of cyber music performance. This notion forms one of the core components of the MUSense Project, dedicated to the exploration of musical issues in an ever-evolving cyberspace. The survey rests partially on the belief that human premonition is helpful in forecasting future events. Readers are encouraged to take this 10-25 minutes survey by 31 January to help MUSense shape a vision for the performances of tomorrow, by giving their valuable input.
