CMMR 2017

The 13th International Symposium on Computer Music Multidisciplinary Research (CMMR) will take place in Matosinhos, Porto between 25-28th September 2017. This edition encourages the submission of proposals related to the theme: Music Technology with Swing.


Music is not only about sounding, but also about moving: from the highly skilled movements of individual musicians to the involuntary foot-tapping turning into the synchronization of a thousand dancers. Technology can certainly be exciting per se, but there is nothing quite so compelling as music technology in the way it further enhances our ability to sound together, to move together, to dance together. Swing — both as in the back and forth of a pendulum and as in the surprising rhythmic event that contradicts whilst drawing from our expectations — is a word that conveys this excitement, this liveliness and the permanent endeavour of finding new musical possibilities.
