New Interfaces for Musical Expression

New Interfaces for Musical Expression, also known as NIME, is dedicated to scientific research on the development of new technologies for musical expression and artistic performance. Researchers and musicians from all over the world gather to share their knowledge and late-breaking work on new musical interface design. The conference began as a workshop at the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) in 2001. Since then, international conferences have been held annually around the world. NIME-06, the sixth international conference, was hosted by IRCAM, Paris, in June 2006. NIME-07, was held in New York City, hosted by the Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center, New York University's Music Technology Program and the Interactive Telecommunications Program in the Tisch School of the Arts. NIME-08 was hosted by the Infomus Lab at the University of Genova, Italy. NIME-09 is to be hosted by the Carnegie Mellon School of Music in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The following is a partial list of topics covered by the NIME conference:

  • Design reports on novel controllers and interfaces for musical expression
  • Performance experience reports on live performance and composition using novel controllers
  • Controllers for virtuosic performers, novices, education and entertainment
  • Perceptual & cognitive issues in the design of musical controllers
  • Movement, visual and physical expression with sonic expressivity
  • Musical mapping algorithms and intelligent controllers
  • Novel controllers for collaborative performance
  • Interface protocols (e.g. MIDI) and alternative controllers
  • Artistic, cultural, and social impact of new performance interfaces
  • Real-time gestural control in musical performance
  • Mapping strategies and their influence on digital musical instrument design
  • Sensor and actuator technologies for musical applications
  • Haptic and force feedback devices for musical control
  • Real-time computing tools and interactive systems
  • Pedagogical applications of new interfaces - Courses and curricula
