CIME/ICEM at CEMI, October 1-4, 2014

Acousmatic Music in the Internet Age


Dear Colleagues:

It is with great pleasure that we look forward to hosting CIME/ICEM 2014 here at the University of North Texas College of Music Center for Experimental Music and Intermedia (CEMI). The conference will focus on the topic of acousmatic music in the age of the internet. We invite music/video/installation submissions and proposals for papers, seminars, panel discussions, workshops, and virtual presentations (Skype) on topics as diverse as the following:

  • What is the future of acousmatic music within the context of new and emerging technologies.
  • How do the internet and new technologies impact the production and dissemination of acousmatic art.
  • Do new technologies create new modes of listening.

The conference will feature afternoon presentations (papers, studio reports, panel discussions, seminars, and/or workshops) and evening concerts. The concerts will take place in Voertman Hall and in the Merrill Ellis Intermedia Theater (MEIT). Both spaces feature immersive surround sound systems with more than 16 channels of audio and theatrical lighting systems. The MEIT also features 270-degree wraparound video projection screens. Installations may be presented in various locations within the college, including the CEMI studios.

We have been able to obtain some grant funding and can provide a festival dinner as well as lunches for attendees. Depending upon the number of participants who will attend the conference, it is also possible that we may be able to provide some financial support for lodging and/or provide additional evening meals. This will be determined once we have heard from the federations.
