Proceedings of the 2005 conference on New interfaces for musical expression

  title={Proceedings of the 2005 conference on New interfaces for musical expression},
  author={Sidney S. Fels and Tina Blaine},
The 2005 International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression is the 5th conference on new musical interface design and follows the initial NIME workshop at CHI 2001. Since then, international conferences have been held in Dublin, Montreal and Hamamatsu.This year, the conference is hosted at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada from May 26 to 28. The conference consists of a three full-day event where research papers, demos and performances will be presented on… 
Form and function: examples of music interface design
Observations on the creation of digital music controllers and the music that they generate from the perspectives of the designer and the artist are presented.
A Drawing-Based Digital Music Instrument
The Illusio is presented, a digital musical instrument based on an augmented multi-touch interface that combines a traditional multi- touch surface and a device similar to a guitar pedal that allows users to perform by drawing and by associating the sketches with live loops.
Active Acoustic Instruments for Electronic Chamber Music
The article discusses the design, implementation, acoustics, sound capture and processing of an active acoustic instrument, as well as gestural control using the Leap Motion sensor.
Calcification and Hybrid Live-Coding
This paper presents a design framework for building music performance systems that are both highly responsive and easily customizable during performance, and discusses hybrid live-coding environments and how calcification can help performers design custom interfaces in these environments.
Programming Interactive Music Scores with INScore
The scripting language is presented and its ability to describe interactions based on events, while remaining in the temporal space is illustrated and the IRCAM gesture follower is introduced and how it is embedded into INS CORE to provide gestural interaction capabilities.
The history and current practice of isomorphic note layouts from traditional stringed instruments to commercial hex keyboards and virtual keyboards available on tablet computers are described, and the complete space of such layouts is investigated.
Interactive sonification strategies for the motion and emotion of dance performances
Results show that having both music and dance led to higher accuracy scores for most target emotions, compared to music or dance conditions alone.
Touch Screen Collaborative Music: Designing NIME for Older People with Dementia
Findings presented in this paper demonstrate that people with dementia can successfully perform and engage in collaborative music performance activities with little or no scaffolded instruction and suggest that peopleWith dementia can develop and retain musical performance skills over time.
Investigating Perceived Emotional Correlates of Rhythmic Density in Algorithmic Music Composition
These results further corroborate previous studies wherein musical parameters are monitored for changes in emotional expression and that some similarly parameterized control of perceived emotional content in an affective algorithmic composition system can be achieved and provide a methodology for evaluating and including further possible musical features in such a system.
ARCAA: a Framework to Analyse the Artefact Ecology in Computer Music Performance
A framework that supports designers in understanding the artefact ecology in the music performance scenario, in particular, allowing to frame the role of the different actors, and allows comparing how the various artefacts create connections among the different people involved.
