Embodied Musical Interaction

In this talk I discuss how the concept of embodied interaction can be one way to think about music interaction. I look at a phenomenological, participatory definition of embodied interaction, and propose how the three "paradigms" of HCI can serve as a way to consider types of music interaction. I use this conceptual framework to discuss three different musical projects-Haptic Wave, Form Follows Sound, and BioMuse.

O2: Rethinking Open Sound Control

O2 is a communication protocol based on IP that extends Open Sound Control (OSC) with discovery, named-services, clock synchronization, and reliable delivery. I will describe O2 and present some examples of its use for tightly synchronizing over 20 networked laptops in the CMU Laptop Orchestra and for a new sound synthesis library and server for embedded audio applications.

Sound Design in Our Sound Environment: Soundscape Design, Auralisation and Evaluation in Environmental Acoustics

The soundscape of our environment helps us to better understand the world we live in, and has a direct affect on our health and wellbeing. Auralisation – the audio equivalent of visualisation - is key in developing a better and more creative understanding of how significant changes or infrastructure planning in our urban environment can have an impact on our related environmental soundscape. This presentation gives an overview of how auralisation has been used in the context of recent soundscape case studies at the University of York AudioLab. The complete auralisation chain is presented, from source measurement to soundscape monitoring, through sound propagation modelling using numerical simulation, soundfield rendering and the potential for immersive multimodal presentation.

An experimental archive for artistic practice

ArtDoc is an experimental archive primarily for the purpose of documenting artistic practice. One of the ambitions is to address the question of how artistic practice may be documented in a manner that makes visible the processes in action. ArtDoc has its roots in research and artistic practice that began over ten years ago and preliminary tests shows it to be a useful complement to other means to document musical works and artistic processes. The particular case of open form works, works that in some respect are negotiated between the different agents involved, such as composers, musicians and members of the audience, was a point of departure and has guided the development to a significant degree. The underlying structure of documentation classes is discussed and an example of how the archive may be used in connection with the speaker dome Klangkupolen in Lilla Salen at the Royal college of music is presented.
