Details of our SIGGRAPH ASIA 2015 course are now available at the SIGGRAPH ASIA 2015 web site:
This year SIGGRAPH ASIA will be held in Kobe, not so far from Ritsumeikan University.
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.
We’ll be offering the ‘Introduction to Creating Musical Interfaces‘ course again this year at CHI 2015, which is to be held in Seoul. The course has also been offered at SIGGRAPH, SIGGRAPH Asia, and NIME.
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.
Our course proposal was accepted at SIGGRAPH ASIA 2014. The course will be held December 3, 2014 in Shenzhen China. More information here. It will be great to have active participation at SIGGRAPH ASIA from Ritsumeikan !
