Roger Lenoir (1972) E. M. Msc. Sound & Music Technology, studied Music Science at the University of Amsterdam (1992) and Music Technology (1994-1998) at HKU. His graduate research focussed on the systematic representation of musical expression using programming languages conceived for artificial intelligence. Special attention was given to the person and context dependent adaptability of such systemic representations allowing multiple perspective taking.
Since 1997 he investigated and applied his understanding of sound and music modelling in various non-musical domains, such as fluid management (hardware drivers), content and process management (ICT) and crossmedia (e)Publishing architectures for the print impaired. Since 2000 Roger has been involved as a researcher, developer and system architect in numerous EU funded research, development and exploitation projects in the eCulture and e-Inclusion domains. During this period Roger combined his understanding of knowledge representation and system architectures into applied knowledge engineering paradigms for process oriented creation and publishing systems encompassing musical, graphical, geographical, mathematical and textual content sources with a heterogenous client basis. Roger has been publishing these software design strategies in various EU project proposals, reports, articles (Computer Music Journal, Journal of New Music Research) and conference presentations.
Roger has been affiliated with HKU as a professional since 2006. As a member of the Music Technology department his activities focussed on knowledge engineering music technology’s domain. Specifically formal and informal properties into knowledge representation architectures that embed information visualisation and sonification capabilities. As a member of the Creative Design Practices programme at the Faculty of Art, Media and Technology, he worked towards representation systems and schemes for the research, education and exploitation of collaborative creative processes. Since 2006 Roger coaches students with an intrinsic “affiliation” with complex systems and visual thought and integrated these insights into his research and systems. Roger contributed his understandings in numerous NL and EU funded projects and reports in the domains of eCulture and CI and contributed to the book “The Library of 100 Talents”. Roger’s work lead to practice-driven technological systems supporting his research and coaching activities.
