The conference theme this year is ³Imagining Sound and Music²
How does one design the sound of an imaginary creature and what is the
between the artist and the engineer when turning musical imagination into
reality? Whether composing musical scores, creating fantastical sonic
spaces, or creating monster sounds, the
resultant interaction with such imaginary sonic artefacts plays no less a
significant role than the realization of the aural imaginary.
Topics of Interest:
The Audio Mostly conference series is interested in sound interaction
general, is strongly interdisciplinary, and provides a space for
creative approaches. Hence, prospective contributions are not limited to
methodological approaches and presentations dealing with the theme from
philosophical or an empirical viewpoint are welcome along with those with a
more mixed method. Contributions may address a number of sound- and
topics related to the theme that include, but are not limited to:
· shared and individual imagination
· user experience
· fantastical sounds and spaces
· future interfaces for new experiences
· sensory and perceptual modalities
