Call for Papers: evomusart 2011 [it Torino]

evo.jpgevomusart 2011, 9th European Event on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music, Sound, Art and Design :: April 27 – 29, 2011 :: Torino, Italy :: Call for Papers: Deadline – November 22, 2010.

The use of biologically inspired techniques for the development of artistic systems is a recent, exciting and significant area of research. There is a growing interest in the application of these techniques in fields such as: visual art and music generation, analysis, and interpretation; sound synthesis; architecture; video; poetry; and design.

evomusart 2011 is the ninth european event on Evolutionary Music and Art. Following the success of previous events and the growth of interest in the field, the main goal of evomusart 2011 is to bring together researchers who are using biologically inspired techniques for artistic tasks, providing the opportunity to promote, present and discuss ongoing work in the area.

Music of the Nano-Spheres: On Sonification

nano.jpgFrom Nano-Wiki :: Music of the Nano-Spheres by Roger Malina, April 15, 2010:

There is a several thousand year history of associating music with cosmic phenomena, the famous “Music of the Spheres” created from the regularities in the astronomical universe. Even though of course there is generally no sound in outer space, because the conditions of pressure and density to allow acoustic waves are very rare.

The same urge motivates artists and scientists interested in sonifying

Sound Artist Peter Gena has a large collection of DNA Music and other sonifications of molecular structures: http://www.petergena.com/DNAmus.html

BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body [ie Dublin]

bio.jpgCall for proposals: Calling all experimental musicians, musical neuroscientists, sound artists, cyborg performers, dance-floor divas and harmonic engineers :: Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin is currently developing a major new exhibition and event and workshop series entitled BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body and we are seeking your proposals for gallery installations, experiments, events, workshops and performances for inclusion. We will consider both proposals for projects within the Science Gallery building and off-site or roaming projects. Some funding is available to support projects, but projects which can bring other sources of support are welcomed.

How does the body respond to music? Is there a neuroscience of dance? Is there a formula for the perfect hit? Why does a minor cord sound sad? How does a DJ manipulate the emotions of a crowd? Continue reading

PROCESS Festival Berlin

process.jpgPROCESS Festival Berlin :: Call for Proposals — Deadline: January 2, 2010.

PROCESS Festival Berlin is now accepting proposals for performances and new-media work, to be shown at our 2 day festival in mid-March 2010. The Festival seeks to highlight new and compelling work in the field of generative or process music – focusing on sound pieces which are inspired by or emulate algorithms, biology, or other defined systems.

From scores generated from nature (Mamoru Fujieda’s “Patterns of Plants”) or mathematics (John Cage’s “Sonatas and Interludes”), to interactives which allow users to create music (Brian Eno’s Bloom for iPhone) or a system as simple as 2 tape recorders (“It’s Gonna Rain” by Steve Reich), this space has enjoyed a compelling history.
