Interactive Music Notation and Representation Workshop@NIME 2014
Mon. June 30th, 2014 – 9:30 to 13:00
Goldsmiths, University of London

Computer music tools for music notation have long been restricted to
conventional approaches and dominated by a few systems, mainly oriented
towards music engraving. During the last decade and driven by artistic
and technological evolutions, new tools and new forms of music
representation have emerged. The recent advent of systems like Bach,
MaxScore or INScore (to cite just a few), clearly indicates that
computer music notation tools have become mature enough to diverge from
traditional approaches and to explore new domains and usages such as
interactive and live notation.

The aim of the workshop is to gather artists, researchers and
application developers, to compare the views and the needs inspired by
contemporary practices, with a specific focus on interactive and live
music, including representational forms emerging from live coding.
Special consideration will be given to new instrumental forms emerging
from the NIME community.

Workshop attendees must register for NIME for at least one of Tuesday,
Wednesday or Thursday (see here) but don’t pay for the workshop day. You
must send an email to dfober@gmail.com with your coordinates to be
registered to the workshop itself.
