Frédéric Dufeu is Senior Research Fellow in Music and Music Technology at the University of Huddersfield. He is currently working on the IRiMaS project (Interactive Research in Music as Sound, 2017-2022) funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and directed by Michael Clarke; his research within IRiMaS is dedicated to the development of software environments for an interactive aural approach to music analysis and, more generally, musicology.

He joined the Centre for Research in New Music (CeReNeM) at Huddersfield in August 2012, working as Research Assistant on the TaCEM project (Technology and Creativity in Electroacoustic Music, 2012-2015) funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and directed by Michael Clarke and Peter Manning (Durham University). He took up his current position as Research Fellow in July 2015 and, before working within IRiMaS, has been pursuing research on and development of innovative software tools for musical creation, sound experimentation, and interactive analysis.

Prior to Huddersfield, Frédéric Dufeu worked as Teaching Assistant in Computer Music and Electroacoustic Music Studio Manager at Université Rennes 2 (France), where he completed a Master’s degree in Arts and Digital Technologies supervised by Bruno Bossis (2007) and a PhD in Music supervised by Antoine Bonnet (2010). He has been qualified to apply for lecturer positions by the French National Council of Universities (CNU), in sections 18 (Arts, 2011) and 22 (History and Civilisations, 2015).
