Betreff: [cec-c] Call for Papers: Human Technology | Music, Mind, & Technology: Exploring the Embodied Musical Experience

Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce an upcoming thematic issue of the open-access journal Human Technology on the topic of:
„Music, Mind, & Technology: Exploring the Embodied Musical Experience”.

Link to full call: https://humantechnology.jyu.fi/submit/call-for-papers/music-mind-technology-exploring-the-embodied-musical-experience

We seek contributions that emphasize technology’s contribution to the study of music and embodiment. Studies that demonstrates how technology enables researchers to computationally model the structure of embodied musical expression and experience throughout various music-related activities would be particularly relevant.

Varying orientations on the subject are welcome, as is research on music as a creative endeavor through performance and dance or as a tool toward healing, well-being, and growth in therapeutic and educational settings. Reports on empirical studies and theoretical papers are welcome. The themes include (but are not restricted to):

Embodied cognition and/or 4E cognition

• Music and movement
• Best practices for data collection within the field
• Phenomenology of technology
• Music and multimodality
• Synchronization and entrainment
• Embodiment in music performance and/or perception
• Embodiment and dance
• Novel analysis techniques

Sound and music computing

• Embodied perspectives on new musical interfaces
• Music and interaction design
• Virtual musical instruments
• Movement sonification environments
• Music technology and entertainment
• Music and sound analysis

Music technology in education and well-being

• Everyday use of music
• Music and affect regulation
• Amateur music making
• Music therapy interventions using embodiment frameworks
• Music making by individuals with disabilities
• New technology in music therapy

This call for papers is open from September 1 to November 30, 2019.
