The ninth meeting of the Northeast Music Cognition Group (NEMCOG) brought over 180 researchers and students to Cambridge, MA, to present on recent advances across the Northeast Corridor. This meeting, which took place on 16 January 2016 at Harvard University, broke new ground in its display of interdisciplinarity and interactivity. Talks and posters spanned the music-theoretical to the neurologic-clinical, and experimental performance interludes were woven throughout the day. The presentations, performances, and a decidedly challenging keynote—delivered by Dr. Vijay Iyer (Harvard University) and followed by conversation with Dr. Aniruddh Patel (Tufts University)—together issued a powerful reminder that music research—like the act of making music itself—must not be performed in a vacuum.
