iscMME 2015 Keynote

We are delighted that Thor Magnusson will be your keynote speaker!

Bio: Thor Magnusson is a lecturer in Music at the University of Sussex. His work focusses on the impact digital technologies have on musical creativity and practice, explored through software development, composition and performance. He is the co-founder of ixi audio (www.ixi-audio.net), and has developed audio software, systems of generative music composition, written computer music tutorials and created two musical live coding environments. As part of ixi, he has taught workshops in creative music coding and sound installations, and given presentations, performances and visiting lectures at diverse art institutions, conservatories, and universities internationally. Further information: http://thormagnusson.github.io

Keynote: Interfacing Sound: Visual Representation of Sound in Musical Software Instruments

In this keynote Thor Magnusson will discuss work in composition, performance and the development of audiovisual software – from small instrumental applications to live coding systems. Exploring concepts of affordances and constraints, the ixi lang and Threnoscope live coding environments will be presented as examples of limited systems that frame the musician’s compositional thoughts. Both are systems that engage with the visual as an integral element of musical composition, equally as prescriptive and representative notation for musical processes.

The talk will examine how music software development goes hand in hand with music research; where the digital system’s requirements for specifications and completeness inevitably forces a strong understanding of the source domain. Such musical practice, when expressed through performance or composition, derives from a rigid research process, yet exists separately from it.

The iscMME 2014 programme is as follows:

Programme

Keynote presentations will be given by John Eacott and Renee Timmers. Renee will give a talk about her research into cross-modal associations with music and applications in visual feedback on performance, and will discuss evidence of cross-domain mappings using a number of different experimental paradigms, before presenting applications of such mappings in the design of visual feedback on music performance. John’s talk will be followed by a performance of his algorithmic composition ‘Flood Tide’, which generates a live music from tidal flow information.
