A NIME Primer
Attending NIME for the first time can be an overwhelming experience. Beginners may find it difficult to make sense of the vast array of topics presented during the busy program of talks and posters, or appreciate the significance of the wide variety of demos and concerts. This 3 hour workshop is intended to provide a general and gentle introduction to the theory and practice of the design of interactive systems for music creation and performance. Our target audience consists of newcomers to the field who would like to start research projects, as well as interested students, people from other fields and members of the public with a general interest in the potential of NIME. We aim to give our audience an entry point to the theory and practice of musical interface design by drawing on case studies from previous years of the conference. Past attendees of the workshop have told us that they gained a helpful perspective that helped them to increase their understanding and appreciation of their first NIME

NIMEcraft Workshop: Exploring the Subtleties of Digital Lutherie
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This workshop will explore the craft of digital musical instrument design through a combination of discussion and a hands-on instrument design activity. Craft practice is central to the working process of both acoustic and digital instrument builders. Unlike the higher-level NIME design frameworks and taxonomies that appear in the literature, craft knowledge is often personal, subjective, and occasionally difficult to describe in writing. This workshop will call attention to this important aspect of instrument design and explore how it can be better disseminated and shared within the NIME community. Following an initial discussion, several identical digital instruments will be provided. Participants will work in groups to sculpt and fine-tune the subtle behavioural details of each instrument, comparing results at the end.

(ALL DAY) 1st International Workshop on Motor Learning for Music Performance

The First International Workshop on Motor Learning for Music Performance (MOTION2017) investigates the links between music performance training and motor performance features, in order to design systems and interfaces supporting learning of both traditional and novel music instruments. The quality of the motor performance is of great importance in music training, especially in learning how to play a music instrument. This indeed requires accurate movements of the limbs and of the body, fine-grained control of posture, and a high biomechanical efficiency. Moreover, a wrong training approach may cause mechanical problems developing into injuries and levels of excess tension that restrict freedom of movement. Finally, it is well-known that movement and gesture play a major role as conveyors of expressive content in music performance. The workshop represents an occasion to meet and discuss motor performance in music instrument training under different perspectives with a multidisciplinary approach. The goal is to discuss current research, to identify research challenges, to show results, and to foster collaborations. The workshop is partially supported by the EU-H2020-ICT Project TELMI.

(ALL DAY) Creating a Distributed Music Performance using Web Technologies
This workshop will share strategies for distributing music events across an array of mobile devices, such as the mobile phones of a concert audience. We will first discuss new developments in web audio and share templates for various distributed music paradigms. In the second half of the workshop, we will lead attendees as they develop their own web instrument capable of distributing sound events across an array of mobile browsers and/or distributing interfaces to mobile browsers for audience interaction.

The workshop will focus on the integration of three toolkits created by the workshop leaders:
- Rhizome: A web server for participatory performances and installations
- WebPD: A subset of Pure Data vanilla running in the web browser
- NexusUI: A collection of HTML5 audio interfaces compatible with mobile devices

Attendees should bring a computer, and, ideally, a fully-charged mobile device which can run a web browser.

(ALL DAY) Designing Raspberry Pi NIMEs (workshop-performance)

Raspberry Pi Orchestra’s focus is on offering a malleable and affordable platform for the exploration of both musical instrument building and musicianship. The following proposal is comprised of two components: a workshop and a performance. Participants in a day-long workshop will be given an opportunity to learn about the hardware setup, various approaches to sensing user input, instrument design using Pd-L2Ork (a fork of Pure-Data and Pd-Extended), and efficient approaches to communicating musical score. A select group of participants (up to 6) will be also given an opportunity to partake in the performance consisting of two compositions: an arrangement of Brian Eno’s “An Ending (Ascent)” for the Raspberry Pi Orchestra, and a new improvisatory piece devised as part of the latter half of the workshop.

Participants need to bring their own laptops with an ethernet port, an ethernet cable, and headphones/earbuds. Lastly, they are encouraged to bring their own Raspberry Pi if they have one with Raspbian pre-installed

(ALL DAY) NIME Pedagogy workshop
The NIME Pedagogy Workshop will be a structured forum for NIME educators to share their approaches, experiences and perspectives on teaching NIME curricula. Courses related to NIME research are being taught all over the world in contexts ranging from Universities to hacker spaces. These courses tend to be highly interdisciplinary, and each instructor faces a unique set of environmental, technological and institutional concerns. This workshop will be an opportunity to discuss and reflect on our own pedagogical approaches, learn from one another, and strategize innovative solutions to common challenges.

(ALL DAY) Setting up and running a Mobile Phone Orchestra
This is a tutorial on setting up and running mobile phone orchestras. The participants will learn how to build the infrastructure that typical contemporary mobile phone orchestras use, will learn about the logistics of running such ensembles, and will learn about the technical underpinnings of varied forms of performance practices including mobile live-coding, audience participation, networked performances and more. We will also cover the basics of custom music app design using the urMus environment. urMus provides a live-patching environment for performance and rapid prototyping. This will allow participants to learn how to design and implement rich and complex interfaces that are useful and expressive for mobile performance. The course will be accessible to anybody who has a general knowledge of computer music. Prior basic programming experience and basic knowledge in sound synthesis is helpful but not required. We will discuss a range of performance by our ensemble to provide practical realizations for of the technical capabilities of mobile devices for musical ensemble performance.

Acoustically Active Augmented Instruments
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Acoustically Active Augmented Instruments is a workshop at the crossroads of the physical and the digital, bridging musical instrument craftsmanship, acoustics, signal processing and physical computing in order to create hybrid instruments. The workshop aim's is to offer an insight into the augmentation of acoustic stringed instruments with active acoustics - i.e. audio transducers exciting the instrument's physical structure. Gestural input devices will be explored in order to build a control channel for the instruments' electronic layer and different pickup technologies explored.

Note: The participants are invited to bring instruments to be augmented. However, this is not a strict requirement, and we can find workarounds.

Design a Live Coding Language as Instrument

Invent your own language-as-instrument! In this workshop we're each going to design an idiosyncratic ‘mini-language’ for making music, and we’ll do it live. Our languages are going to be input as raw text, and our role is to define how this text will meaningfully generate structured sonic events. The instructors will give a gentle introduction to the construction of grammars for parsing, followed by workshop time to experiment and develop their languages, with a little reserved at the end for presentations or performances. We're going to do most of this using a web-based code editor and other open-source browser-based software provided by the instructors. The languages we create will make sound via built-in browser sound capabilities, or via connecting external software and  devices through MIDI, websockets, etc.

No experience in any specific technology is necessary, however some programming experience will be helpful (particularly JavaScript). Participants will need access to a computer (such as a laptop) with a modern browser installed (Chrome is strongly recommended), plus headphones. Participants will leave with the knowledge and software required to continue development of their language on their own. The resulting musically-oriented domain-specific languages could serve as musical instruments, platforms for live coding performance, or tools to aid composition.

Skill Learning and Interactive Music Technology
The fast advances of computer and sensor technologies have led researchers and artists to develop new opportunities for musical expression through the design of novel digital musical instruments and interactions (DMIs). One of the most critical challenge faced by DMIs designers, researchers and practitioners has been to account for learning and transmitting expertise related to their instrument. On the one hand, it is far from obvious how performers could reach expert skills in novel DMIs. On the other hand, it is not clear how DMIs could benefit to human learning, human development and well-being. In this workshop we aimed to bring together researchers, designers, and artists in order to better understand what are the issues underlying this challenge. We aim at identifying key research questions and suitable methods in order to tackle these issues.

Keynote: The Modeling Shift
Music from deep time to nowadays with deep networks charts
the growth of artificial tools for sound and music creation. Some
milestone examples illustrate how models in the digital age are more
than that, they become the things we use to make and to appreciate
music.  Instruments, venue acoustics, composers, listening preferences
are modeling targets and have experienced this shift. The art of music
has always been an earlier adopter of new tools in a given
technological age and is often a domain which pushes the extremes of
complexity. Today's digital instruments, automata, and assistants, are
no exception. That complexity can reduce to simplicity through
application and practice, a premise which will be explored by touching
on the existence of characters in music.

BlockyTalky: A Prototyping Toolkit for Digital Musical Interfaces
NOTE:  BRING YOUR OWN LAPTOP!
This hands-on workshop invites participants to prototype a digital musical interface using a computer music toolkit called BlockyTalky. BlockyTalky affords rapid prototyping of tangible interfaces and interoperates with other creative computing tools through OSC. We will experiment with BlockyTalky as a prototyping tool for designers, artists, and engineers who want to quickly build “proof of concept” systems for musical expression without the need for complex circuitry and fabrication. Participants will have the opportunity to design interfaces with a variety of sensors, program the logic for their systems, and connect their BlockyTalky devices to external programs such as music and visual arts software via OSC.

Build Your Own Solarsonic Instrument
In this 3-hour workshop, participants will use a supplied kit to build their own "solarsonic," or solar-powered instrument.  The workshop will include a basic introduction to photovoltaic technologies and theory, electronics prototyping and simple logic-chip synthesis, and examples of various ways this technology has been used by myself and others. Students will construct a simple instrument and the workshop will conclude with an outdoor group improvisation with the resulting instruments.  No previous experience will be required.

Costs: To participate in this workshop a kit is need, which will cost 40euro. The kit will be available at the workshop.

Crafting Instruments with Bela
This workshop will explore building digital musical instruments using Bela, an embedded platform for audio and sensor processing. Bela features include ultra-low (< 1ms) latency from action to sound, analog and digital I/O sampled automatically at audio rates, a convenient browser-based IDE including an in-browser oscilloscope, and support for programming in C/C++, Pd and SuperCollider. Following an introduction to Bela, participants will extend and modify simple musical instruments based on contact microphones and waveguide string models, focusing on the subtle details of instrument craft. Electronic parts and a variety of physical materials will be available to incorporate into the instruments.

Note: participants should bring their own laptop.

Performing Spatial Sound using Parat+
This one-hour workshop explores the use of an integrated framework for the live performance of simultaneous spectral, temporal and spatial sound manipulation, including a hands-on exploration for workshop participants of a new faderbox app for iOS, Parat+.

Parat+ allows the simple reconfiguration, recording and looping of fader movements using multi-touch gestures without leaving the main fader interface. It is designed by and for performing electronic musicians that want to be able to reconfigure, remap, record and loop fader gestures intuitively whilst playing. Faders can be controlled directly by sound into the iPad mic with gating and threshold, one-flick record and loop, two-finger remapping of fader range, and three-finger readjustment of curvature of response, allowing gestures and shapes to be re-scaled, augmented, paused, interrupted and over-ridden.

Parat+ also offers a rotary spatial sound controller designed for panning and diffusing simultaneous layers of sound into ambisonic and binaural playback environments, turning Parat+ into a powerful real-time spatial sound manipulation tool. Parat+ is developed by Incalcando (http://incalcando.com), with additional spatial sound controllers developed in collaboration with the University of Glasgow.
