International Computer Music Conference in Athens

by Ioanna Zikakou - Sep 8, 2014
the 40th International Conference on Computer Music (ICMC) will be hosted
for the first time in Athens along with the 11th European Sound and Music
on Computer Conference (SMC) from September 14 to 20. Both conferences have
the form of a music festival and are considered as the most important
conferences of their kind. They are hosted annually in different countries
and are the international forum which highlights the latest developments in
science as well as the art of computer music.

The joint ICMC/SMC/2014 conference is organized by the University of Athens
(Department of Music and Department of Informatics and Telecommunications),
the Institute for Research on Music and Acoustics (IEMA) and the Onassis
Cultural Foundation. The two conferences will take place under the auspices
of the President of the Hellenic Republic.

The conference’s central theme is titled “Music Technology Meets Culture:
>From Digital Sound to Virtual Ethos.” Participating scientists from the
fields of technology and audio computer music, composers, musicologists and
philosophers, engage in a constructive dialogue on the contemporary music
scene creation with computers as well as on new trends and developments in
the scientific field of computer music.

The conference schedule includes scientific sessions, presentations and
workshops as well as four daily concerts lasting one hour and a half each,
held in the halls of the Onassis Cultural Foundation, presenting pioneering
works written with computers. It will also include a three-hour “night
concert” at the former Athens Stock Exchange, which will open its doors
exclusively for the conference, and an outdoor concert at Filopappou Hill.

A total of 25 concerts will be held, 40 hours of music and 260 musical
works will be played, selected by an international jury.

At the same time, throughout the duration of the conference, various
structures will be scattered around Athens, which will create sound through
interaction with the audience or the environment. The Athens Stock Exchange
will also present a small professional exhibition on music technology.
