EmCAP (Emergent Cognition through Active Perception) is a research project in the field of Music Cognition funded by the European Commission (FP6-IST, contract 013123).

It started in October 2005 and finished by September 2008.


Our goal is to investigate how complex cognitive behaviour in artificial systems can emerge through interacting with an environment, and how, by becoming sensitive to the properties of the environment, such systems can autonomously develop effective representations.
