online collaboration/coordination in preparation of articles/topics as an intentional
gesture to exercise the collaboratory nature of our networked endeavour in general.
Towards this end we would like to suggest a series of online discussions beginning
on Thursday Feb 17th in North America and EU - Friday Feb 18th in Australasia.
We would appreciate if you would make arrangements at your institution to use your
local teleconference facilities. Otherwise, we can arrange Skype meetings with
The agenda would be to get a rough outline of territories to map for the upcoming issue:
analytical, theoretical, artistic statement, or possible inclusion of documented performances for
a companion DVD. Any discussion before hand on the stremes-l list would be welcome:
Organised Sound: An International Journal of Music and Technology
Call for submissions
Volume 17, Number 1
Issue thematic title: Networked Electroacoustic Music
Date of Publication: April 2012
Publishers: Cambridge University Press
Organised Sound has regularly covered networked music in the past, including a themed issue (vol. 10/3, 2005). The proliferation of Internet2 has resulted in a sustained practice of sonic and multimedia experimentation over high-speed research networks. This current themed issue aims to explore and document current work, practices and innovation in this new musical space. Are there new issues in aesthetics to be addressed in electroacoustic music as mediated by networks? What continuing practices and roles are being transformed and/or reinterpreted as a consequence? What are the most significant new outcomes or processes? What are the current research questions that need to be explored? As the diffusion of multichannel audio set an agenda for a generation of electroacoustic music, will geo-diffusion be a new benchmark?
Topics for investigation might include, but are not restricted to:
· Conceptual frameworks for current and continuing research
· Perceptual/cognitive framing of the tele-musical event
· Aesthetics/philosophy of sonic interconnection
· Beyond spatialisation: geo-diffusion
· New tools and techniques being used and explored
· Production and social-organisational challenges created by distributed work
· Hybrid art-forms that may have emerged
· Challenges in combining local and remote acoustics
· Human and Network Interaction (HNI)
· Distributed / remote participation (composition, performance, reception)
· Network acoustics: sonifying the network
· Sonic outcomes of machine, Internet2, and human interaction
· Artistic statements and innovative outcomes
As always, submissions related to the theme are encouraged; however, those that fall outside the scope of this theme are always welcome.
Deadline for submissions is 15 June 2011. Submitted papers may supporting audio and audio-visual material will be presented as part of the journal's annual DVD-ROM which will appear with issue 17/3 as well on the journal’s website when the issue is published.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 15 June 2011
