the deadline for the paper submission of the ICMC/SMC 2014 will be extended to April 15th. The announcement is pending, and a second call has been sent already to several mailing lists. Here I forward you a call that may be of interest to members of this list.
Dematerializing - Rematerializing:
Tangibility and sense of presence through physical interaction present ongoing challenges in digitally mediated technologies. These are particularly pertinent in time based Arts such as Computer Music and Sound Art because of the level of intimacy and directness that are required.
The democratization of Computer Arts and Computer Music have, because of the dematerialization afforded by digital technologies, considerably pushed the boundaries of creativity.
However, this creates the problem of reconciling this openness with modes of experience characterized by notions such as embodiment, presence, enaction and tangibility, that can be said to be inherent in and fundamental for any creative process, and of course of finding the good alliance between them and the immaterial.
The European Art-Science-Technology Network (EASTN), proposes a dedicated session to the joint ICMC/SMC 2014 conference and invites contributors to submit Philosophical as well as Technical Papers discussing the notion of tangibility in the above sense
Topics can be, but not exclusively : Embodiment / Tangibility / Enaction / Computer Arts / Interaction in Music / Interaction in Arts / Interfaces / Sensors / Actuators / Physical Modeling / Modeling / 3D Printing, etc.
