Inspirational Ideas

"The Inspirationals" is one of the ICMC novelties this year. The ICMC2005 team, together with the S2S� project (, proposed another way of actively participating and interacting in the conference apart from the traditional calls. A chance for researchers, composers, students and doctors to submit visionary, inspired and thought provoking ideas in the field of computer music; musical, technical, scientific, theoretical, practical or aesthetical ideas that fit in a single A4 page, but go far beyond it.

Thirty five inspired people submitted their work. Out of these, the reviewer panel chose twenty and grouped them into three broad categories: net/mobile/social, interfaces/interaction and music/analysis. The accepted proposals will be printed as handouts and authors will have a five minutes presentation in a free-spirited discussion forum somewhere near the old town of Barcelona, just after the summer night fall.

We believe the Inspirational sessions are a chance for us, the computer music community, to open our minds, rediscover the interdisciplinary aspects of our field and discus the new challenges and possibilities of the future. We are looking forward to seeing you in this very first episode of "The Inspirationals".
