NIME 2022 at the Augmented Instruments Lab

The Augmented Instruments Lab invite you to view NIME 2022 (28 June to 1 July) onsite with us at QMUL. As the conference is entirely virtual this year, we will be hosting colleagues and researchers for viewing, discussion, demos, and general in-person interaction during the conference period. The NIME programme runs from 12pm-12am (BST) each day. This a casual, free gathering open to anyone registered for the NIME conference. Please email us for details if you would like to attend.

As a lab we are thrilled to be presenting 6 papers (all available here):

  • The M in NIME: Motivic analysis and the case for a musicology of NIME performances (Lia Mice and Andrew McPherson)
  • Quantitative evaluation of aspects of embodiment in new digital musical instruments (Andrea Guidi and Andrew McPherson)
  • Dialogic Design of Accessible Digital Musical Instruments: Investigating Performer Experience (Eevee Zayas-Garin and Andrew McPherson)
  • Exploring Experiences with New Musical Instruments through Micro-phenomenology (Courtney Reed, Charlotte Nordmoen, Andrea Martelloni, Giacomo Lepri, Nicole Robson, Eevee Zayas-Garin, Kelsey Cotton, Lia Mice and Andrew McPherson)
  • The 10,000 Instruments Workshop - (Im)practical Research for Critical Speculation (Giacomo Lepri, John Bowers, Samantha Topley, Paul Stapleton, Peter Bennett, Kristina Andersen and Andrew McPherson)
  • Being With The Waves: An Ultrasonic Art Installation Enabling Rich Interaction Without Sensors (Nicole Robson, Andrew McPherson and Nick Bryan-Kinns)

Lab member Teresa Pelinski is leading the online workshop Embedded AI for NIME: Challenges and Opportunities which will be held on 28 June.
