9th Sound and Music Computing Conference, 12-14 July 2012

Medialogy section, Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology, Aalborg University Copenhagen

The SMC Conference is the forum for international exchanges around the core interdisciplinary topics of Sound and Music Computing, and features workshops, lectures, posters, demos, concerts, sound installations, and satellite events. The SMC Summer School, which takes place just before the conference, aims at giving young researchers the opportunity to interactively learn about core topics in this interdisciplinary field from experts, and to build a network of international contacts.

The specific theme of SMC 2012 is "Illusions", and that of the SMC Summer School is "Multimodality".

================Important dates=================
Deadline for submissions of music and sound installations: Friday, February 3, 2012

SMC2012 will cover topics that lie at the core of the Sound and Music Computing research and creative exploration.
We broadly group these into:
- processing sound and music data
- modeling and understanding sound and music data
- interfaces for sound and music creation
-music creation and performance with established and novel hardware and software technologies

================Call for papers==================
SMC 2012 will include paper presentations as both lectures and poster/demos. We invite submissions examining all the core areas of the Sound and Music Computing field. Submission related to the theme "Illusions" are especially encouraged.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed according to their novelty, technical content, presentation, and contribution to the overall balance of topics represented at the conference. Paper submissions should have a maximum of 8 pages including figures and references, and a length of 6 pages is strongly encouraged. Accepted papers will be designated to be presented either as posters/demos or as lectures. More details are available at

================Call for music works and sound installations==================
SMC 2012 will include four curated concerts addressing the conference topic "Illusions". We invite submissions of original compositions created for acoustic instruments and electronics, novel instruments and interfaces, music robots, and speakers as sound objects. Submissions of sound installation are also encouraged. See curatorial statements and call specifics at:

15:30-17:30 Palle Dahlstedt (Sweden, IT University of Gothenburg)
In my art and my research I concerntrate on two things - to understand the mechanisms of artistic creative process, and to develope more intuitive performance instruments for improvisation of electronic music. The purpose of understanding artistic creativity is to be able to evoke creative behavior in computers, and allow computers to actively participate in the making of art and music. In my lecture I will tell a little about my work in this field.

My work on performance instruments is motivated by the need for extreme freedom and agility while improvising together with other musicians. To solve this I have developed a new kind of mapping from control interfaces to synthesis, allowing fingertip control over a large number of continuous parameters, while being very easy to implement. Specifically made for improvisation, they allow a kind of control over sound that was previously only possible in acoustic instruments, and a we have developed a whole family of instruments around these mappings. In the lecture/concert, I will demonstrate a few different versions of these instruments, including one using pencil markings on paper as a gestural interface for analogue synthesis.

Palle Dahlstedt is a composer, pianist, improviser and researcher from Sweden. Musically he spans from free improvisation and noise electronics to interactive computer music and orchestral music, always driven by curiosity and high energy. As associate professor in computer-aided creativity and main lecturer in electronic music at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, he specializes in developing new ways of improvising on analog and digital electronics, and making computers become creative on their own. His music has been awarded several international prizes (e.g., Gaudeamus Prize 2001), and has been performed all over the world.
