Call for Participation
With funds from the MIReS research project, ISMIR 2012 welcomes submissions of musical works for selection and possible inclusion in the conference's concert program. We particularly encourage works that explore the notion of music information in the widest sense of the term. As the use of technology in music creation develops across composition and performance practices, structured data plays an increasingly important role in the processing of musical materials, their analysis and their manifestation in a live environment. From the use of timbral analysis in spectral music to the design of live improvisation systems, the handling of information is critical to the role technology plays in music.
The aim of ISMIR 2012 concert program is two-fold:
- to encourage the use of Music Information Retrieval (MIR) techniques in the creation of new music and
- to explore music that can suggest novel ideas for research in the MIR ﬁeld.
The music program in the conference will be centered around two curated concerts that will happen on October 9 (curated by Daniel Teruggi) and October 10 (curated by François Pachet). Professional musicians will be available to perform the pieces. An ensemble of world-class performers, consisting of Piano, Violoncello, Double Bass, Clarinet, Saxophone and Percussion. Information and bios of the performers is available here.
In order to better promote the music program at ISMIR some funding may be available to help pay for expenses regarding the presentation of musical works. This funding will be given on a discretionary basis, and upon request.
Submitted musical works will go through a selection process by the conference music chairs and music curators.
