Theme: Imagining Sound and Music
How does one design the sound of an imaginary creature and what is the relationship between the artist and the engineer when turning musical imagination into reality? Whether composing musical scores, creating fantastical sonic spaces, or creating monster sounds, the resultant interaction with such imaginary sonic artefacts plays no less a significant role than the realization of the aural imaginary. Contributions may address a number of sound- and music-based topics related to the theme that include, but are not limited to, shared imagination, user experience of imagined sounds, fantastical sounds and spaces, imagination and creativity, the technology of imagination, future interfaces for new experiences, interacting with the imaginary, sonic imagination and other sensory modalities, conceptualization, drafting and implementation of sonic, imagination. Papers dealing with the topic from either a philosophical or an empirical viewpoint are welcome.
