Subject: [announce] Call for Works: The Musical Metacreation Concert
MUME 2018 Concert - CALL FOR WORKS
Creators of musically metacreative systems are invited to submit works for
a concert of musical metacreation, as part of the Ninth International
Conference on Computational Creativity, at University of Salamanca,
Salamanca, Spain. Submitted works can be of any musical style, but must
involve a performative element and must involve the use of computational
creativity techniques in the creation of the work. Examples from previous
MuMe concerts include, but are not limited to: reproduction of musical
style using machine learning; the evolution of musical structures using
interactive genetic algorithms; rule-based systems; systems based on
emergence or self-organisation; systems that perform music data mining to
create remixes, and so on.
All up-to-date information can be found here
Types of Work
Any work related to MuMe that can be presented in a performance context
will be considered. This includes:
Improvising agents that perform alongside live musicians.
Automated composition systems that generate music in real-time or
pre-compose music for performers, as well as automated DJ systems.
Systems that use AI methods for other creative objectives, such as
harmonising, intelligent looping, or finding suitable matches for a target
Systems that generate lyrics.
Music that uses evolution, emergence or ecosystemic concepts.
Please submit a two page A4-portrait PDF describing your work before the
submission deadline. Email your submission to chairs(a)musicalmetacreation.org
.Submissions should not be anonymised. Your submission should:
Describe the work.
Explain how the work relates to the MuMe theme.
Give a relatively detailed technical description of the system*.
Give detailed performance requirements. As necessary, this may include a
stage plan, equipment needs, technical support needs, and performing
musicians (you can use additional PDF pages for any supporting items).
Provide a link to any additional documentary material such as audio or
video recordings, or online software (highly recommended).
Give credits and biography (name, affiliation, short biography up to 150
* It is common to receive submissions that are highly ambiguous about what
the proposed system actually does. Works will be rejected if this is the
case. The description does not need to be highly technically detailed but
it should remove any fundamental ambiguity.
All submissions will be reviewed by three independent members of the
selection committee. Once these reviews have been completed the reviewers
and the chairs will discuss these works and reviews. The chairs will
provide a meta-review, the three original reviews, and a final decision.
Reviewers will be anonymous to the authors, but not to each other. The
final decision lies with the chairs, in consultation with the committee.
Artists are required to be in attendance and set up their own equipment. At
least one artist must register for the ICCC conference and MuMe workshop.
A schedule for performances, rehearsals and soundchecks will be made
available in the week before the concert. Rehearsals and sound checks will
be on the Sunday 24th June unless otherwise arranged.
