The MAG has a very important part to play in the understanding and research of many aspects of acoustics. The obvious connections between music and acoustics include the design of opera, concert and recital performance venues, studio and practice room acoustics and design.
However, aspects such as musical instrument design, music technology, music therapy, musical perception, the singing voice, the use of electronics in musical performance and reproduction also encompass a wide field of acoustical knowledge.
The mission of the MAG is as follows:
• To encourage closer working with professionals in related disciplines such as architects, musical instrument designers and builders, sound engineers, performing musicians and composers, musical education, music in health and wellbeing.
• To be a forum for members and other professionals with an interest in all aspects of musical acoustics.
• To promote a wider understanding of musical acoustics to academics, professionals in all related fields and increase public awareness.
• To hold regular meetings (with access available to related professional disciplines) for the interchange of information and experiences.
