SIGGRAPH ASIA 2015: Ritsumeikan Contributions

Our half-day course on designing and building new expressive musical interfaces was accepted for presentation at SIGGRAPH ASIA 2015, which will be held in Kobe this year – not far from our base at Ritsumeikan University. It will be good to contribute to SIGGRAPH ASIA again this year. Stay tuned for more details.

Work from Ritsumeikan will be featured at SIGGRAPH ASIA again this year.

SIGGRAPH 2015: Ritsumeikan contributions to the SIGGRAPH conference

Our half-day course on how to design and build new musical interfaces was accepted for SIGGRAPH 2015. Unfortunately, I will not be able to travel from Ritsumeikan to Los Angeles to attend Siggraph this time but Prof. Sid Fels (UBC) will be presenting our course. Additionally, one of my video artworks was selected for screening at Siggraph 2015. ‘Soft Pong Inari’ with a soundtrack composed by seminar guest Prof. Palle Dahlstedt (Universities of Gothenburg and Aalborg) was selected for the ‘Enhanced Vision – Digital Video’ Siggraph exhibit and will screen as part of the SIGGRAPH 2015 artistic program.

ACM CHI 2015 Course proposal on Musical Interfaces Accepted!

Our CHI 2015 course proposal, ‘Introduction to Creating Musical Interfaces’ has been accepted! By chance this was submission #101, and I’m thinking of retitling the course ‘Musical Interfaces 101’.

ACM CHI is the largest and most influential conference in the field of human-computer interaction (ヒューマン•インタフェース in Japanese).

The ACM CHI 2015 conference will be held in the Gangnam district of Seoul and pop musician Psy will be keynote speaker this year.

We also offer versions of the course at SIGGRAPH, SIGGRAPH ASIA, and NIME itself.
