Here’s a logo I designed for the IDMIL a while ago, for putting on our conference posters and such:
The Input Devices and Music Interaction Laboratory (IDMIL) is the lab where I work on my PhD research, part of the Music Technology Area of the Schulich School of Music at McGill University. It’s a really cool place:
The Input Devices and Music Interaction Laboratory (IDMIL) was established in March 2005. The IDMIL is affiliated with the Music Technology Area of the Schulich School of Music at McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The laboratory deals with projects related to the topic of human-computer interaction, design of musical instruments and interfaces for musical expression, movement data collection and analysis, sensor development, and gestural control.
The IDMIL is directed by Prof. Marcelo M. Wanderley, and is funded through grants from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, Fonds Quebecois de Recherche sur la Nature et les Technologies, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Quebec’s Ministry of Economic Development and McGill University.
The IDMIL is associated with the Sound Processing and Control Laboratory on various projects related to gestural control of sound synthesis and mapping strategies for music performance.
Since we deal with the musical applications of human factors research I thought it was appropriate to use Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man; the Fender P Bass is there ’cause they’re awesome 🙂
