Pierre Couprie wins Max Mathews Quartz award for iAnalyse and EAnalysis

Pierre Couprie, software designer behind iAnalyse and EAnalysis, last night won the Max Mathews Prize at at the tenth 'Max Mathews Qwartz Music Awards' ceremony.

The development of EAnalysis initially took place as part of a research project entitled ‘New multimedia tools for electroacoustic music analysis’ at the MTI Research Centre of De Montfort University (Leicester, UK). This initial project was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) between 2010 and 2013.

EAnalysis is a sound-based music analysis tool, allowing users to visualise sonograms, work with multiple audio tracks and video and realise works visually with the software's analytical tools.

At the same event, Pierre Henry won a Qwartz award dedicated to his career as a composer and researcher.
