New Paradigms for
Welcome to the SBCM 2009! The SBCM is a biannual
event with international recognition in the field of computer music
organized by the Special Committee on Computer Music of the Brazilian
Computer Society (SBC).
This 12th edition will be held in the state
capital of Pernambuco, in the beautiful northeastern Brazilian coast,
and is dedicated to the relentless and continuous renewal in paradigms
to make music with computers, extending the vision towards new
computationally relevant portable devices and personal "gadgets", as
hand-helds, cell phones and multimedia players, bringing their essences
and their trends.
In these times when production and consumption of
music has been transformed by the action of social networks and new
paradigms of creation, distribution and consumption of music, new
topics attract the interest of both academic and industry communities.
Recently there has been an interest in new music software with which
the user has an amplified participation in the generation of the music
and can control aspects before restricted only to composers or
producers. The music in the dancing houses, for its popularity, has
also been a lever propulsion of a generation of gadgets for DJ's that
can not only make music with their pick-ups but also with adigital
players network, fetching remote sound objects and performing live with
musicians on stage.
We aim to bring together speeches and polemics
from experts of the arts and technology for a convergence in SBCM 2009.
The program of the symposium includes lectures by
renowned researchers, presentations of technical and music papers,
panel of discussions and concerts. The program will include, among
others, a participation of Miller Puckette
(University of California, San Diego), author of the graphical
programming environment Pure Data (Pd), a tutorial on mathematical
models incomputer aided music theory (composition and analysis) offered
by IRCAM, and a lecture by composer Daniel Teruggi,
director of the Music Research Group of INA (Institut National De
A comprehensive technical and cultural programming
is in design for all participants of SBCM 2009. We plan having
strategic discussions panels, covering topics of impact for the
computer music in Brazil and abroad, and approaching new technologies
and devices for professionals to make music.
A selection of the best papers presented in SBCM
2009 will be invited to submit an extended version for a special
edition of the Journal of New Music Research. The best student
paper presented at SBCM will be awarded. Two awards are given: one for
best technical paper and another for the best article of music. One of
the prizes will be an annual subscription of the IRCAM Forum software.
