Continuing progress in Brain-Computer Interfacing (BCI) research and the emergence of more affordable EEG equipment are fostering a renaissance of the idea of interfacing the brain with systems for music.
The field of Brain-Computer Music Interfacing, or BCMI, is emerging and establishing itself as an important area of research linking music, engineering and the health sector.
The 1st International Workshop on BCMI reflects the growth of BCMI and aims to unite practitioners, create a platform of discussion regarding best practice, promote this up-and-coming field of contemporary research, and celebrate the diverse musical accomplishments achievable through BCMI. The workshop is aimed at providing a variety of platforms for participant engagement, including paper presentations, demonstrations of systems, and a musical concert in the evening. Submissions will be peer reviewed and the proceedings will be published.
- The workshop is scheduled to take place on 15th June 2015, the day before the 11th International Symposium on Computer Music Multidisciplinary Research (CMMR 2015), Music, Mind, and Embodiment, which also takes place in Plymouth, UK on 16-19 June 2015.
- Prof David Rosenboom, the pioneer from CalArts, California Institute of the Arts, is set to perform at the workshop and deliver a keynote.
- The workshop celebrates the publication of the unprecedented new book by Springer entitled Guide to Brain-Computer Music Interfacing, edited by Eduardo R. Miranda and Julien Castet.
