The Institute of Music and Knowledge is a non-profit socio-cultural entity. It is dedicated to the spread of culture, especially about music, as a tool for the development of society through education, knowledge and talent.
It promotes proposals from all eras and styles that involve artistic innovation. To achieve this, the Institute works in three directions: it informs about musical news, educates through cultural spreading and supports artists with a good level of creativity.
It is an independent and impartial entity that runs on the cooperation of both private and public organizations and the income that its activities generate.
Thanks to the collaboration with the university sector and its graduates, as well as the business area, the IMK has a multidisciplinary team that relies on the use of new technologies, design and communication. This working group, made up of undergraduate and master’s degree students from different majors, researches the history and the present of music from an artistic, social, historic and anthropological perspective.
As a result, we have obtained an extensive database of information that is constantly being updated.
In order to transmit this set of verified, high-quality knowledge, we create didactic tools and materials such as texts for bibliographic posts, journalistic articles, radio scripts, multimedia presentations, videos, podcasts, and a multitude of other formats.
Backed by these resources, we carry out various activities. Among them, we produce programs on different radio stations, and edit www.musicandresearch.com.
We also teach classes in educational centers, organize workshops and conferences in sociocultural entities and collaborate with artists and researchers.
At the same time, we participate in programs of public and private entities, for which we provide cultural management services, such as: documentation and content creation, organization of seminars, or production of concerts and festivals.
The Institute of Music and Knowledge is coordinated and directed by Amador Pérez de Algaba: computer scientist, cultural manager, teacher, editor, disseminator and music critic.
