John Sullivan

Post-Doctoral Researcher


Since March 2023, I am working as a post-doctoral researcher in the Sequence Production Lab and the Input Devices and Music Interaction Lab of McGill University. Previously, I completed a PhD at IPEM, the research lab investigating embodied music cognition at Ghent University.

Research Statement:

I investigate the coordination dynamics of music making by creating immersive contexts where humans and machines can meaningfully interact and express themselves. I’m currently working with non-linear and dynamic models of coordination to create adaptive virtual agents that can rhythmically interact within musical ensembles. My main interests lie in the metastable and ambiguous region between the real and the virtual, the individual and the collective, human nature and technology. You can find some illustrations of my work on Youtube.
