Papers, Workshops & Demos


Authors are invited to submit one publishable article or proposal for research presentation/panel on the subject of electroacoustic music.  Selected articles and presentations will be represented in the conference booklet by their abstracts.  Copy-ready papers will be forwarded to the editors of Journal SEAMUS for review.

This year, Wesleyan’s George Jackson Memorial Lecture on Music will be given by Georgina Born, Professor of Anthropology and Music at Oxford University and has been scheduled to provide a contribution to SEAMUS 2014. Professor Born has written on IRCAM, the BBC, art-science, and has edited a recent anthology entitled Music, Sound, and Space. In her introduction to that volume, she provides a trenchant account of both musical and social concepts of space and identifies crucial points of interaction between these divergent conceptions. We are particularly interested in receiving proposals that respond to the themes of this anthology that could contribute to a panel to be held in together with the Jackson Lecture.

Workshops and Demonstrations

Technologists are invited to propose workshops introducing software and/or hardware configurations that are either general purpose or specific to a particular composition.  Proposals should indicate if these are best presented as ongoing demonstrations or scheduled presentations.
