Music . Acoustics . INsight
We are Dr. Indraswari Kusumaningtyas and Dr. Gea O.F. Parikesit, two engineers from Universitas Gadjah Mada. Our current research is centered on the physics of musical instruments. Driven by curiosity, we deliberately make time to wander and play across disciplines, collaborating with musicians, craftsmen, scholars, and conservators. By pursuing unusual questions at the interactions between music and acoustics, we develop a comprehensive insight on nature and culture. Our research has been supported by the National Geographic Society, highlighted by the Acoustical Society of America, reported by the SBS Australia, awarded the Best Poster Prize by the International Symposium on Music Acoustics, and affiliated with the Indonesia Initiative and Asia Scholars fellowship programs.
