LIM | Laboratorio di Informatica Musicale
LIM - standing for Laboratorio di Informatica Musicale (Music Informatics Laboratory) - is one of the main labs of the Department of Computer Science, Università degli Studi di Milano. It includes 4 rooms equipped with music, multimedia and computer devices.
Officially founded in 1985 by Goffredo Haus, who is still its scientific director, LIM has hosted composers and renowned experts such as Angelo Paccagnini, Antonio Josè Rodriguez Selles, Franco Donatoni and Dante Tanzi.
In almost 40 years of activity, LIM carried out international projects and established important collaborations. Among others, it is worth mentioning: Teatro alla Scala of Milan, Bolshoi Theatre of Moscow, RAI Radiotelevisione Italiana, RSI Radiotelevisione Svizzera, Orchestra Verdi di Milano, IEEE Computer Society, Ricordi Historical Archive, and the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities. LIM also worked with recording industries, broadcasting companies, editors, software houses, internet companies, music producers, and musical instruments manufacturing industries.

SONICOM is a 5-year research project funded under the Horizon2020 FET Proactive – Boosting emerging technologies. The goal is to revolutionise the way we interact socially within AR/VR environments and applications by leveraging Artificial Intelligence to design a new generation of immersive audio technologies and techniques, specifically looking at personalisation and customisation of the audio rendering. The LIM staff focuses on spatial audio, looking at AI HRTF modelling, spatial hearing perception, and real/virtual blending.
The LIM collaborates with the Department of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences of the University of Milan on a project funded by the Lombardy Region. Its multidisciplinary approach aims to develop a continuous monitoring system in dairy goat farms by means of vocalization analysis. For more information, visit the ▸portal of the project.
|Rendering Music Textualities through Time
“Rendering Music Textualities through Time” is a project based on Luciano Berio's Gesti which aims to create a flexible and interactive multimedia platform to highlight the relationships between the different forms of textuality of a musical work. Potential applications embrace teaching and research in both musicology and performance practice. This two-year project is made possible by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation and is in cooperation with Centro Studi Luciano Berio.
