Joseph Tilbian: "Stride: A Domain-Specific Language for Sound Synthesis, Processing, and Interaction Design"

CCRMA-Stanford University - Fri, 03/31/2017 - 23:34
Date:  Thu, 04/06/2017 - 5:15pm - 6:15pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom Event Type:  DSP Seminar Abstract: Stride is a domain-specific language for real-time sound synthesis, processing, and interaction design. Through hardware resource abstraction and separation of semantics from implementation, Stride targets a wide range of computation devices such as micro-controllers, system-on-chips, general purpose computers, and heterogeneous systems. With a novel and unique approach at handling sampling rates as well as clocking and computation domains, Stride prompts the generation of highly optimized target code. The design of the language facilitates incremental learning of its features and is characterized by intuitiveness, usability, and self-documentation. FREE Open to the Public

5th ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modelling and Design

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Mon, 03/20/2017 - 12:00

5th ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modelling and Design
Oxford, UK, September, 9th 2017

Key Dates:

Submission deadline June 1, 2017
Author Notification July 1, 2017
Camera Ready July 13, 2017

Call for Papers and Demos:

The ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modelling and Design (FARM) gathers together people who are harnessing functional techniques in the pursuit of
creativity and expression.
It is co-located with ICFP 2017, the 22nd ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming.

Functional Programming has emerged as a mainstream software development paradigm, and its artistic and creative use is booming. A growing number of software toolkits,
frameworks and environments for art, music and design now employ functional programming languages and techniques. FARM is a forum for exploration and critical evaluation of
these developments, for example to consider potential benefits of greater consistency, tersity, and closer mapping to a problem domain.

FARM encourages submissions from across art, craft and design, including textiles, visual art, music, 3D sculpture, animation, GUIs, video games, 3D printing and architectural
models, choreography, poetry, and even VLSI layouts, GPU configurations, or mechanical engineering designs. Theoretical foundations, language design, implementation issues,
and applications in industry or the arts are all within the scope of the workshop. The language used need not be purely functional (“mostly functional” is fine), and may be
manifested as a domain specific language or tool. Moreover, submissions focusing on questions or issues about the use of functional programming are within the scope.

FARM 2017 website :


We welcome submissions from academic, professional, and independent programmers and artists.

Submissions are invited in three categories:

1) Original papers

We solicit original papers in the following categories:
- Original research
- Overview / state of the art
- Technology tutorial

All submissions must propose an original contribution to the FARM theme. FARM is an interdisciplinary conference, so a wide range of approaches are encouraged.

An original paper should have 5 to 12 pages, be in portable document format (PDF), using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines and use the ACM SIGPLAN template. [ ]

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part of the FARM 2017 proceedings. See for information on the options available
to authors. Authors are encouraged to submit auxiliary material for publication along with their paper (source code, data, videos, images, etc.); authors retain all rights to
the auxiliary material.

2) Demo proposals
Demo proposals should describe a demonstration to be given at the FARM workshop and its context, connecting it with the themes of FARM. A demo could be in the form of a short
(10-20 minute) tutorial, presentation of work-in-progress, an exhibition of some work, or even a performance. Demo proposals should be in plain text, HTML or Markdown format,
and not exceed 2000 words. A demo proposal should be clearly marked as such, by prepending Demo Proposal: to the title.

Demo proposals will be published on the FARM website. A summary of the demo performances will also be published as part of the conference proceedings, to be prepared by the
program chair.

3) Calls for collaboration

Calls for collaboration should describe a need for technology or expertise related to the FARM theme. Examples may include but are not restricted to:
- art projects in need of realization
- existing software or hardware that may benefit from functional programming
- unfinished projects in need of inspiration

Calls for collaboration should be in plain text, HTML or Markdown format, and not exceed 5000 words. A call for collaboration should be clearly marked as such, by prepending
Call for Collaboration: to the title.
Calls for collaboration will be published on the FARM website.

Submission is via EasyChair

Authors take note

The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your
conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.


If you have any questions about what type of contributions that might be suitable, or anything else regarding submission or the workshop itself, please contact the organisers

All presentations at FARM 2017 will be recorded. Permission to publish the resulting video (in all probability on YouTube, along with the videos of ICFP itself and the other
ICFP-colocated events) will be requested on-site.

In and Out of Space: Critical Approaches to Spatiality in Sound and Image

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Fri, 03/17/2017 - 10:25

In and Out of Space: Critical Approaches to Spatiality in Sound and Image is a two day doctoral training workshop at the University of Aberdeen, and features keynotes, workshops and performances by Professor Paul Koonce (University of Florida), Trond Lossius (BEK) and Johannes Deutsch.

The Universities of Aberdeen, Abertay and Robert Gordon University, in association with SCAN, sonADA and SGSAH are holding a two-day training workshop (17th -18th March 2017) at the University of Aberdeen, which will provide doctoral students with the theoretical and practical skill-set to understand the role of space and spatiality in sound and image, particularly focusing on 3D audio rendering, sonification and visualisation technologies in constructing, making sense of and interacting with 3D space and exploring ways in which these technologies can be utilised in their own artistic and theoretical work.

The workshop will comprise a series of seminars, technical sessions and performance/screening of works by three internationally renowned professionals in the field of 3D sound and 3D visualisation whose main artistic outcomes have focused on space and spatiality.

The three invited keynote presenters are:

Professor Paul Koonce – University of Florida
(creative use of Wave Field Synthesis)

Trond Lossius – Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts;

Johannes Deutsch
(sonification and visualisation of space)

Tickets for the artistic presentations can be booked here:

Fri 17th March, 1615 – 1800, Johannes Deutsch screening

Sat 18th March, 1715 – 1830, Paul Koonce & Trond Lossius performance
