NIME – algorithmic pattern
I gave a paper and performance for the New Interfaces for Musical Expression conferece last week. It was to be hosted in Birmingham UK, but went online. It seems to have been a big success and the organisers are talking about making future conferences online too, irrespective of pandemic emergencies, in the interests of making the conference more accessible and reducing damage to the planet.
My paper “Algorithmic Pattern” is here, and here is a 10 minute demo of some of the ideas in it:
Here’s my performance, demonstrating my prototype ‘feedforward’ editor. The NIME audience seemed to enjoy that I left a crash in..
Hybrid live coding workshop
I’ve been working on the hybrid live coding interfaces research workshop with Shelly Knotts and Jack Armitage, happening online 28-29th July 2020. It was originally going to be colocated with NIME, but we decided to hold it a week later, and twice as long (six hours, spread over two days) so that we could include more people and make registration free.
The abstracts will be up soon, but you can already see the schedule and list of speakers on the website. There’s a really nice mix of talks, should be ace!
With all the responsibilities and stress of lockdown, we made it as quick and easy to propose something as possible. There’s no publication attached, but with it being a free event, and low-barrier to entry, we got loads of proposals. We’re using the very promising pubpub.org system from MIT to collect abstracts, which I highly recommend as a multi-user publishing tool supporting peer review and comments.
