This project creates an archive of musical performances, masterclasses, workshops, rehearsals, lecture-recitals and other sonic-based material that is either research-valid or of direct interest to researchers in the several areas of practice-based musical research.  It includes examples of different types of musics, and interactive computer-supported performance in digital audio and video format, affording an open-access, online multimedia repository of downloadable material for the purposes of research, study and teaching.  It offers performers, composers and other researchers whose findings are best expressed through real-time and sonic events a platform for the dissemination of their work, whilst scholars will find a range of practice-based outputs that have not heretofore been available to the research community.
