Nuanced and Interrelated Mediations and Exigencies (NIME): Addressing the Prevailing Political and Epistemological Crises

Nearly two decades since its inception as a workshop aspart of the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI), NIME exists as an established international conference significantly distinct from its precursor. While this origin story is often noted, the implications of NIME’s history as emerging from a field predominantly dealing with human-computer interaction (HCI) have rarely been discussed. In this paper, we highlight many of the recent—and some not so recent—challenges that have been brought upon the NIME community as it attempts to maintain and expand its identity as a site for multidisciplinary research into HCI, interface design, and electronic and computer music. We discuss the relationship between the mar-ket demands of the neoliberal university—which have underpinned academia’s drive for innovation—and the quantification and economisation of research performance which have facilitated certain disciplinary and social frictions to emerge within NIME-related research and practice. Draw-ing on work that engages with feminist theory and cultural studies, we suggest that critical reflection and moreover mediation will be necessary in order to address burgeoning concerns which have been raised within the NIME discourse in relation to methodological approaches, ‘diversity and inclusion’, ‘accessibility’, and the fostering of rigorous interdisciplinary research.

*POSTPONED due to COVID-19* Creativity and Improvisation in Thought, Practice, and Mind

Many human cognitive capacities and processes may be deployed creatively, from unique choices made for oneself up through novel cultural shifts. Similarly, large swaths of our daily lives are taken up with performing spontaneous, on-the-fly, and unplanned activities that are, in a word, improvised.  Charting out the nature of both creativity and improvisation, taken individually or together, remains an open and pressing issue. In this conference, we will delve into various philosophical, theoretical, empirical, and interdisciplinary issues that are related to creativity and improvisation.

Music Technology Pedagogy Summit

Paper presentation. 

This summit will focus on issues specific to teaching, program design, curriculum design, and other topics related to music technology pedagogy.  We are presenting this summit as part of a year-long artistic residence with Red Desert Ensemble, a group founded by Katie Porter and Devin Maxwell that focuses on experimental and electronic chamber music, commissioning new works, and music entrepreneurship.

Attendees will explore, examine, and discuss challenges and opportunities in music technology pedagogy in all levels of education: primary, secondary, undergraduate, and post-graduate. The day-long summit will feature participant presentations, invited presenters, a panel, and a keynote address by Dr. Linda Antas, associate professor at Montana State University, where her leadership has helped shape a flagship music technology program.

Stop! Silence! Now!

Aside Theatre Company Presents: Stop! Silence! Now!
An evening of Sound Art to raise awareness of human rights

Sound art is an artistic discipline in which sound is utilized as a primary medium. Like many genres of contemporary art, sound art may be interdisciplinary in nature, or be used in hybrid forms. Sound art can be considered as being an element of many areas such as acoustics, psycho-acoustics, electronics, noise music, audio media, found or environmental sound, soundscapes, explorations of the human body, sculpture, architecture, film or video and other aspects of the current discourse of contemporary art.

Some artistic lineages from which sound art emerges are conceptual art, minimalism, site-specific art, sound poetry, electro-acoustic music, spoken word, avant-garde poetry, and experimental theatre.
