The 13th Sound and Music Computing Conference (SMC2016) has been
organized by the Hamburg University of Music and Drama in
association with the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, the University of
Hamburg and the Leuphana University Lüneburg. The conference took place
from Wednesday, August 31 until Saturday, September 3, 2016.
161 registered participants and approximately another 240 persons have
attended the conference and the accompanying festival.
The motto of both the conference and the festival was S.T.R.E.A.M. (Sound –
Technology – Room – Emotion – Aesthetics – Music) referring to the Hamburg
harbor by the Elbe river and the city’s abundance of canals.
Keynote speakers were John Chowning, Trevor Pinch, Eduardo Miranda and
Cat Hope. The music festival with a total of 11 concerts featured a special
concert on real-time composition/notation and animated scores as well as a
concert showcasing music by John Chowning. The opening day of the
conference presented the past and present of computer music in Hamburg,
home of two of the earliest and most influential digital audio workstations
(Cubase and Logic), and long-time residence of new music visionary György
Ligeti. The conference has also hosted a summer school on the topic of
“Neurons and Networks” from August 26 to 30, 2016.
