Extending interactivity
The contemporary human body is constantly measured and monitored through sensing technologies, and its clinic history sampled and recorded. By inheriting the body-focused technologies developed in XXI century Biomusic, biomusic seeks to transform the human data flow into acoustic information.
The intrinsic risk of enhancing the human body through artefacts, that inherently serve as social support and control, is to strain it up to its dematerialization: the material categorization of the body capacities into economic functions.
The theme of the XXI CIM address the following questions: how is this complementary enhancement affecting the human body-computer interaction? Are there strategies to extend the expressive qualities of the human body, and go beyond the measurement of the physiological processes?

This 2016 edition welcomes scientific and artistic contributions that will reflect on the processes, practices and most significant aspects emerging at the intersection between music and computation in the era of the new bodily technologies.

As usual the CIM program includes scientific/artistic communications, teaching activities, and artistic productions. All communications will be selected through a Call for papers, artistic works will be selected through a Call for scores/works.

Call for papers

Participants are invited to present and discuss the results of their artistic and/or scientific research as an oral communication or a poster.
Furthermore, students and Ph.D. students in Music and Technologies programs are encouraged to present their research projects as work in progress, even if not yet concluded: in this case we do not expect the presentation and discussion of results. This kind of works will be presented as poster and/or demo.

Call for scores/works

The present CIM edition includes six calls:

instrumental scores and electronics
solo sax (alto and soprano) scores and electronics
video-musical and electroacoustic compositions
