The production of music often involves interdisciplinary challenges, requiring creativity, extensive knowledge of audio processing and exceptional listening skills. Many of these complex production processes have rules that could be made more
intuitive, or managed by intelligent processes. Intelligent Music Production focuses on developing systems that map these requirements into automated or adaptive processes within the production chain to achieve results which are both efficient and aesthetically
This event will provide an overview of the tools and techniques currently being developed in the field, whilst providing insight for audio engineers, producers and musicians looking to gain access to new technologies. The day will consist of presentations from
leading academics, keynotes, posters and demonstrations.
- Intelligent music production systems for common tasks such as level-balancing, equalisation, dynamic range processing, audio editing, etc.
- Intelligent music production systems capable of: generating/performing music; supporting the musical creativity of human users; incorporating affective responses.
- Philosophical foundations of IMP systems
- Accessibility in IMP systems
- Surveys of state-of-the-art techniques in the area
- Studies on the applicability of IMP techniques to other research areas
Submissions in the following general areas will also be considered:
- Perception, psychoacoustics and evaluation
- Source separation
- Semantic audio processing
- Musical similarity and structure analysis
We welcome submissions on intelligent music production from researchers worldwide at all stages of their careers.
Paper submissions are accepted in PDF format and should be between 2 and 4 pages including references. Templates for submission can be found on the event website. Papers should be sent to [log in to unmask]
On submission, authors should express in their email a preference for either poster or oral presentation. Posters will be presented during the coffee and lunch breaks.
The one-day conference will take place at the Digital Performance Lab
at the University of Salford Media City campus
2017), and will be preceded by a welcome event with demos at the University of Salford main campus (14 September 2017).
