[ot] call for musical performances for CHI Media Showcase
CALL FOR MUSIC PERFORMANCE SUBMISSIONS
10-15 April 2010
Atlanta, GA, USA
Submission deadline: 9 October 2009
The CHI conference is an annual conference on human-computer interaction. It is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and regularly attracts over 2000 attendees. To broaden the scope of work presented at the conference, we have established a new venue, The CHI Media Showcase, and we are soliciting submissions by artists, designers, musicians, and performers to be included in this year’s program.
The CHI Media Showcase is a chance to present experimental and prototype projects that involve computational media and interaction in a wide variety of forms including video, interactive systems and artifacts, installations, performances, and participatory events.
CHI encourages the submission of compelling musical performances which showcase new interfaces for musical expression and/or new techniques for interfacing traditional musicians with computers.
Submitted works scored for 1-5 musicians (violin, cello, flute, clarinet or saxophone, and percussion) will be considered for performance at CHI by Sonic Generator (http://www.sonicgenerator.gatech.edu). That ensemble, which is in residence at Georgia Tech, includes some of the best chamber musicians in Atlanta and several members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Submitted works for other performing forces are also welcome, but musicians must perform such works themselves or provide their own performers.
Submission to the program only requires a video – an academic paper is *not* required to submit. The key purpose of the video is to communicate to the reviewers your proposal for the CHI Media Showcase. The content of the video will vary depending on how you want to participate in the showcase. For example, if you want to give a music or theatre performance, the video should contain an excerpt of what you will perform. If you want to give a demo of an interactive system or artifact, the video should show a working version of the system. If you want to screen a video in the showcase, your submission video should be an excerpt of the final video. More information about the submission categories are provided at the link below. The only limits of content for the video trailer are your imagination! Just be sure that your video communicates to reviewers your proposal for the CHI Media Showcase.
CHI Media Showcase is a juried track for CHI 2010. While not considered archival, content from most juried venues will be represented in the ACM Digital Library through Extended Abstracts. In addition, select video trailers will be archived online. You may submit work that has already been exhibited, performed or published elsewhere, as long as you make this clear in the submission.
Submissions are due 9 October 2009. The online submission system will open soon.
