"With the advent of Internet computing and the possibility of ubiquitous long distance acoustic communication, the prospect of geographically displaced musical performance became available to a worldwide community. However, in global networks communication Latency (net-delay) is extreme and causes a highly disrupting effect in remote musical performances, especially in more traditional musical forms, which are mostly driven by rhythm and melody involving very tight synchronicity, to achieve a desirable real-time awareness of musical acoustics. In fact, requirements for networked musical performance imply latency thresholds that are amongst the most demanding in Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW), providing a leading framework of critical research for this particular field of Computer Science. "

I collaborated with Professor Álvaro Barbosa [my PhD advisor] on his research on Networked Music Performance.
