International Conference on Multimodal Experience of Music (deadline approaching)

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Tue, 09/09/2014 - 08:23

Call for papers: International Conference on the Multimodal Experience of Music

ICMEM, 23-25 March 2015

In live and virtual situations, music listening and performing are multimodal experiences: Sounds may be experienced tactically, music evokes visual images or is accompanied by visual presentations, and both generate vivid cross-modal associations in terms of force, size, physical location, fluency and regularity, among others.

ICMEM aims to bring together researchers from various disciplines who investigate the multimodality of musical experiences from different perspectives. Disciplines may include among others audiology, cognition, computer science, ethnomusicology, music performance and theory, neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology.

Proposals are invited for papers, symposia, demonstrations and posters. Investigations may include but are not necessarily confined to the following areas

  • Multimodal experiences of music in everyday life
  • Cross-modal correspondences with musical parameters
  • Influences of visual context on music perception
  • Emotion and cross-modality
  • Tactile, visual, and kinesthetic feedback in music performance
  • Multi-modal interaction in multimedia, including film and games
  • Uses of cross-modality in hearing or visual impaired music listeners
  • Strong and weak synaesthesia
  • Motion and movement perception in music
  • Relations between motion and emotion in music listening
  • Brain-structures related to cross-modal associations with sounds
  • Technological and commercial applications of cross-modal associations
  • Creative and pedagogical uses of cross-modality in music

Invited speakers: Profs. Amir Amedi, Eric Clarke, Nicholas Cook, Charles Spence, and Peter Walker

Dates: 23-25 March 2015
Location: Humanities Research Institute, University of Sheffield, UK
Host: Music, Mind, Machine in Sheffield, Department of Music, University of Sheffield, UK

Submission deadline: 6 October 2014 by e-mail to ICMEM@sheffield.ac.uk
Further information: www.sheffield.ac.uk/music/research/mmm/icmem

This conference is supported by ESCOM and SEMPRE, who offer bursaries to student attendees, and by the British Academy.
