AIMI â Italian Association of Music Informatics www.aimi-musica.org
The Italian Association of Music Informatics, founded in 1981, is a point of reference in Italy for musicians and researchers investigating the relationships between music, science and technology. AIMI, which counts among its associated musicians and researchers of international relevance, organizes every two years the so called CIM âÂ Colloqui di Informatica Musicale (Music Informatics Symposium), which represent the most relevant appointment for the scientific and musical debate and within the Italian community of music informatics.
The subjects of the 2012 edition are multimodality and interactivity. By means of the digital technologies, the different forms of art tend to establish strong aesthetical connexions and cohabitation grounds. In particular sound is more and more present and felt as necessary in any kind of artistic expression. In a recent call for papers by the Leonardo Music Journal, one can read: âArt is getting noisier every day. Whether made by sculptors, video artists, composers, printmakers or installation artists, thereâs no question but that âSound Artâ is a genre ascendant.â The sound is, thus, integrated in a multimodal sense within the artistic discourse and, often, the technological means is the most effective tool in order to achieve such goal. In a similar fashion, nowadays technology steers the emergence of artistic works, where the interaction between the machine and a performer, or the public, becomes increasingly and dynamically related to the body and to what happens in the surrounding environments, where the work is situated. The idea ofÂ embodiment and of recovering a physical relation with the machine fosters new forms of expression and relationship with the technology, not only in an artistic context but also in our everyday life.
The CIM programme includes scientific and artistic communications, tutorials activities and artistic productions. The scientific and artistic communications will be selected through aÂ Call for papers, and the musical and artistic works through aÂ Call for scores/works. All the submission will be evaluated by a Scientific and a Musical Committee, respectively.
