Remco Veltkamp studies the interactions between people, music and technology. In cooperation with the Meertens Institute, he has programmed a music search engine for the Nederlandse Liederenbank (Dutch Song Database).

Games are much more than just for hours of fun. You can also use them to conduct research. Remco Veltkamp, Professor of Interaction Technology at the Department of Information and Computing Sciences, studies the interaction between music and users. 

"Almost everybody has a thing with music, but it is still unclear how that works. To us, it is a huge scientific challenge to develop computational techniques to tackle that complexity."
