Sonic Environments – Call For Participation

Here’s a new, interesting opportunity for composers, performers, field recordists and technologists. ​In July 2016, the Australasian Computer Music Association is joining forces with the Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology and NIME 2016 (New Interfaces for Musical Expression) to host an interdisciplinary conference at the Queensland Conservatorium in Brisbane on the theme of Sonic Environments. ​

This conference aims to expand our current understandings of acoustic ecology and the role of sound and technology in understanding rapidly changing environments across the world. The conference theme encourages interdisciplinary perspectives on sound and aims to explore the possibilities of emerging technologies ranging from augmented reality sound walks and generative ecological compositions to networked performance connecting communities and immersive sound in virtual reality.

Sonic Environments will be hosted in collaboration with NIME 2016 (New Interfaces for Musical Expression) the premier international conference in designing human-computer interfaces and interactions for musical performance. Both events are hosted at the Queensland Conservatorium in Brisbane, Australia.


Delegates are welcome to submit creative works for inclusion in the Sonic Environments multi-channel concert or listening room.
