NIMEhub: Toward a Repository for Sharing and Archiving Instrument Designs LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop will explore the potential creation of a community database of digital musical instrument (DMI) designs. In other research communities, reproducible research practices are common, including open-source software, open datasets, established evaluation methods and community standards for research practice. NIME could benefit from similar practices, both to share ideas amongst geographically distant researchers and to maintain instrument designs after their first performances. However, the needs of NIME are different from other communities on account of NIME's reliance on custom hardware designs and the interdependence of technology and arts practice. This half-day workshop will promote a community discussion of the potential benefits and challenges of a DMI repository and plan concrete steps toward its implementation.

Michael Lyons is a professor of Image Arts and Science at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto. His interest in experimental music dates to childhood backyard percussive improvisations, which were not consistently appreciated by the neighbours. As a teenager, Michael studied classical guitar and experimented with home-made analogue noise-making circuits and 1-bit Bach on a Motorola 6800 kit having only 2k of RAM. He has subsequently conducted research... Read More →
