Fusing computer science, electronic music and the digital arts, DMARC is situated in the Dept. of Computer Science and Information Systems at the University of Limerick, Ireland. The centre aims to expand and strengthen the encounter between digital technology and creativity through research, teaching and first class facilities.
Originally established in 1998 as the Centre for Computational Musicology and Computer Music, it supported research and teaching in the fields of computer music, music technology, composition, musicology and acoustics. Since 2006 it has extended its activities to include a wide range of digitally enabled arts practice and media technology research. In 2011 the centre was renamed DMARC – The Digital Media and Arts Research Centre.
