The RNCM Centre for Practice & Research in Science & Music

PRiSM logo with text

PRiSM is the Centre for Practice & Research in Science & Music at the Royal Northern College of Music, directed by composer Emily Howard (Professor of Composition, RNCM) and co-directed by mathematician Marcus du Sautoy (Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science and Professor of Mathematics, University of Oxford).

At its core, PRiSM is a collaborative, interdisciplinary research environment. Working with our members, students, guest artists and scientists, we are developing a novel collaborative method. PRiSM allows new interdisciplinary expertise to emerge: it encourages the development of new languages and new works that explore the limits of those languages.
