The fourMs lab is heavily involved in the organization of the 11th International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression . NIME 2011 will be organized 30 May - 1 June 2011 here in Oslo, and with lots of interesting activities happening in the days before the conference.

Now the official call for participation has just been posted. Please consider submitting a paper, performance, installation or workshop proposal.

Notto Thelle finished his Master of Arts in musicology before the summer. Now his thesis is available online in DUO.

Title: Making Sensors Make Sense: Challenges in the Development of Digital Musical Instruments

Abstract: Despite the fact that digital technology has become an inevitable tool in music production and distribution during the course of the past few decades, live performers of digital musical instruments (DMIs) remain enigmatic to a majority of music audiences. A combination of instrument design issues, limits to the human cognitive system, and cultural constraints may all be contributing factors to these circumstances. This thesis presents a theoretical overview of some challenges in the development of DMIs, weighed against an empirical study based on qualitative research interviews with six DMI performers. Additionally, instrument types are categorized according to the order of separation between action and sound when performing with the instrument (incorporated, direct, mechanical, analog electronic and digital), and a hypothesis regarding the influence of instrument types on the music cognition of performers is tested.

Assoc. Professor Marcelo M. Wanderley from McGill University in Montreal, Canada will hold a guest lecture on the topic Design and Evaluation of New Interfaces for Musical Expression.

 

Published Aug. 7, 2012 10:22 AM

Abstract: This talk presents one approach to the art and technology of performing music with digital computers - designing, implementing, evaluating, and iteratively developing new interfaces for the real-time expressive control of digital signal processing algorithms. The discussion will include presentations of my own musical instruments, the exploration of new performance techniques they bring about, and the musical and technological lessons learned during an evolutionary journey into a modern perspective on one of mankind"s oldest forms of art.

Title: The laptop as instrument

Lecturer: Dan Trueman, Princeton University

Abstract: The laptop orchestra presents a number of fascinating technical and musical challenges. Among them: what kinds of sounds can we create? how can we physically “control” these sounds? how do we compose with these sounds? how do we organize a dozen or more players in this context? with a conductor? via a wireless network? In this lecture, I will discuss our experiences with these questions in the context of the Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk). In particular, I will talk about speaker design, networking approaches, physicality and performance with laptops, and I will also share some of the music we have made over the past three years.

Bio: Dan Trueman is a composer and performer, based outside New York City. He is a student of traditional Hardanger fiddle music, and also composes new music for the instrument. His experiences with traditional instruments inform his work with digital performance technologies; he is co-founder and director of the Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk), the first such ensemble of its size and kind. He also composes for conventional ensembles and orchestra. Dan is an Associate Professor of Music at Princeton University.
