5th Sound and Music Computing Conference - call for works/papers

sound in space – space in sound

The Fifth SMC (SMC08) will be organised by the German Association of Electroacoustic Music (DEGEM) in collaboration with the Audio Communication Group, Technische Universität Berlin. The conference will take place at Technische Universität Berlin from Thur July 31st 2008 - Sun August 3rd 2008.

The main topics of the SMC'08 are historical, aesthetical, technical as well as genre and system specific aspects of sound and space. The scientific program as well as the concerts will have a special focus on different concepts and technologies of spatialisation, including sound art, acousmatic music, stereophonic reproduction, and wavefield synthesis.

In 2007 the Technische Universität Berlin has installed the largest wavefield synthesis system worldwide with 832 channels and 2700 loudspeakers in a 700 seats lecture hall. During the 5th SMC „Space in Sound – Sound in Space“ works for this system will be performed. This system will be augmented by a 20 channel Klangdome and an Acousmonium provided by GRM Paris in the same hall. The simultaneous installation allows a combination of different sound systems with their individual qualities as well as an analytical listening of the same works performed on different systems.
