The MINT Forum 2018 is devoted to the advancement of music through new technologies. How can advances in new technologies change the experience of making music (from the musician’s perspective) and listening to music (from the audience’s perspective)? What are the musical and performative implications and applications of the vast array of new technologies that are now emerging?WHERE: University of Kings College, Halifax, NSWHEN: 16–18 November, 2018
The SenseStage workshop is meant to bring together people from different disciplines (dance, theatre, sound, video, light) and cooperate in a collaborative environment with interactive technologies. The workshop will take place in the Hexagram BlackBox, a special, configurable room equipped with a full set of theatre lights. Furthermore a multichannel sound setup and video equipment will be available. Last but not least, a set of sensor devices with sensors will be available for use during this workshop.
After quite a lot of fiddling around I finally finished porting the SensorWiki.org website from its old MediaWiki version to the new DokuWiki version. This afternoon we pulled the switch and it’s working almost perfectly (except for some new user registration issues to be worked out later). The old version was spammed daily, but it should be much more manageable now 🙂
The online database for the Taxonomy of Realtime Interfaces for Electronic Music Performance project is now online. It currently includes information on 45 interfaces and instruments submitted to their online survey. From the website:
We are interested in exploring the practice and application of new interfaces for real-time electronic music performance. This research is part of an Australian Research Council Linkage project titled “Performance Practice in New Interfaces for Realtime Electronic Music Performance.”
This research is being carried out at VIPRE MARCS Auditory Laboratories, the University of Western Sydney in partnership with EMF, Infusion Systems and The Input Devices and Music Interaction Laboratory (IDMIL) at McGill University.
