Call for Music

CMMR 2016 welcomes the submission of music contributions that will be presented during concerts co-located with the conference.

Original contributions are encouraged in, but not limited to, the following topics:
• Performances related to the conference theme "Bridging People and Sound"
• Music for instruments and electroacoustic
• Live or recorded electronic music for up to 8 channels
• Augmented instruments and new controllers / interfaces
• Acoustic instrumental music composed by algorithmic tools
• Music composed for visuals (e.g., dance and music, soundtracks, multimedia compositions, applied music to dance and movement in general etc.)
• Performances of traditional music enhanced with live visualisation or interactive technology
• Jazz and improvised music - improvisation software
• Interactive pieces

Submissions of any musical style or genre are warmly welcomed.  The conference will provide a small music ensemble (clarinet, percussion, piano, sax and cello); other than that, authors are required to provide their own interpreters/performers. We will provide equipment PC, including 8-channel audio system, a video projector and a grand piano.
