We are happy to announce that our co-edited NIME volume is now available 
as an e-book from Springer, with the paper version coming soon:

Jensenius, Alexander Refsum, & Lyons, Michael J. (Eds.). (2017).
*A NIME Reader: Fifteen Years of New Interfaces for Musical Expression*

Please note that the book is available as a free download (PDF/epub) 
from institutions/libraries with a Springer Link account. This should 
hopefully make up for the otherwise steep price tag.

 From the book cover:

     What is a musical instrument? What are the musical instruments of 
the future? This anthology presents thirty papers selected from the 
fifteen year long history of the International Conference on New 
Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME). NIME is a leading music 
technology conference, and an important venue for researchers and 
artists to present and discuss their explorations of musical instruments 
and technologies.

     Each of the papers is followed by commentaries written by the 
original authors and by leading experts. The volume covers important 
developments in the field, including the earliest reports of instruments 
like the reacTable, Overtone Violin, Pebblebox, and Plank. There are 
also numerous papers presenting new development platforms and 
technologies, as well as critical reflections, theoretical analyses and 
artistic experiences.

     The anthology is intended for newcomers who want to get an overview 
of recent advances in music technology. The historical traces, 
meta-discussions and reflections will also be of interest for longtime 
NIME participants. The book thus serves both as a survey of influential 
past work and as a starting point for new and exciting future developments.

Happy NIMEing!

Alexander & Michael
