Collaborate pilot project
In 2021 we set up a pilot project to fully test the aims and processes of our Collaborate fund.
The pilot project is a research partnership between Manchester Camerata and Dr Michelle Phillips, a senior lecturer at the Royal Northern College of Music.
Working together, they are exploring how listeners respond neurologically, behaviourally and physiologically to different music listening experiences. The project will also investigate whether responses differ between live and recorded performances, an increasing area of interest since the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our Collaborate fund supports innovative new research partnerships between cultural sector practitioners and academics. The fund has two rounds – one in autumn 2021 and one in autumn 2022.
