Interacting with music & sound-related information structures has developed over the last 30 years to encompass a wide variety of compositional and improvisational practices (as exemplified by our guests who are active in free improvisation and composition with CataRT and FluCoMA). This workshop intends to look at current directions in musicological and practical research in the last 14 years, following the review published by Schwarz in 2006 and the interest in databases as new art forms that developed in the mid-1990s. We hope to start a conversation between CIRMMT Research Axis 2 research interests and this range of musical practice. We welcome both research and research-creation presentations. The morning session will be dedicated to formal presentations and the afternoon session to hands-on activities and a round table. The day’s workshop will be followed by a concert in the evening.

This workshop will include the participation of two special guests:
