Open Data: “MusicLab is an innovation project by RITMO (http://www.uio.no/ritmo) and the University Library (http://ub.uio.no/). The aim is to explore new methods for conducting research, research communication and education. The project is organized around events: a concert in a public venue, which is also the object of study. The events also contain an edutainment element through panel discussions with world-leading researchers and artists, as well ‘data jockeying’ in the form of live data analysis of recorded data.” This up-and-coming project namely merges the study of music with physiology using various types of technologies measuring bodily responses. All resources (including data findings) are fully free and available to everyone due to the project’s aims of exploring Open Science within research and research-based education.
