I survived Sound & Music Computer 2013! Quite literally: I got God’s own stomach bug, spent 18 hours in bed, and then flew / fasted my way back to Boston. I can’t recommend that part, but other than that, the trip was lovely.
Some things from the conference:
– I met Tom and Seb from x-io properly, and got to see their worldbeating OSC board.
– Saw my UVic people, Shawn Trail and Duncan MacConnell, and their hyperguitar project. Looking forward to the album…
– Saw Flavio & Tiago, met Andre and Marcelo, and generally had a Brasilian sort of time. Gotta work on my Portuguese for ISMIR.
– Other cool things included: sonification of a tree, a bell played by dirt, scape plots of musical influnence, ‘plucking’ on touchscreens, a great talk about isomorphic pitch layout theory, stuff about soundscape storage, image sonification, re-imagining the orchestral experience, and so on.
– The paper I presented was “A quantitative review of mappings in musical iOS applications”, of course. You can find it, and everything else, in the proceedings.
