New Music Concepts (ICNMC 2018)

March 17-18, 2018    Treviso - Italy

Keynote Lectures
Eduardo Miranda
Plymouth University

Brief Bio
Eduardo R. Miranda is a composer and Artificial Intelligence (AI) scientist. He studied Music Technology at the University of York and received a PhD on the topic of music with AI from the University of Edinburgh. Currently, he is Professor in Computer Music at Plymouth University where he heads the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR), which is pioneering the development of music neurotechnology and biological computing for music. He is emerging as an influential composer for his work at the crossroads of music and science. His music, which includes pieces for symphonic orchestras, chamber groups and solo instruments, with and without live electronics, has been played by ensembles such as Bergersen String Quartet, Leo String Quartet (from the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra), Sond'Ar-te Electric Ensemble, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra and Ten Tors Orchestra, to cite but a few. In addition to concert music, he has composed for theatre and contemporary dance. The inside story of his acclaimed computer-aided symphony, Mind Pieces, is revealed in the e-book Mind Pieces, published by Intelligent Arts (

Patricia Alessandrini
Goldsmiths, University of London

Brief Bio
Patricia Alessandrini is a composer and sound artist creating multimedia and interactive work which actively engages with the concert music repertoire, and notions of representation, interpretation, perception and memory, often in the context of social and political issues. These works are often theatrical and collaborative, involving elements such as live electronics, physical modelling, resonating and animated objects, physical computing, and interactive video in staged or installation situations. They are intimately linked to her research on embodied interaction, including instrument design for inclusive performance; her most recent research focusses on the control of robotics systems through Music Information Retrieval (MIR) and machine-learning techniques.
She was previously an instructor of alto perfezionamento of Computer-Assisted Composition at the Scuola superiore of the Accademia Musicale Pescarese, a Lecturer in Composition with Technology at Bangor University, and is currently a Lecturer in Sonic Arts at Goldsmiths, University, where she heads the Unit for Sound Practice Research (SPR).

Luca A. Ludovico
Università degli Studi di Milano

Brief Bio
Luca A. Ludovico is researcher and professor of Music programming, MIDI programming and Sound synthesis at the Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy. He received his Master of Science in Computer engineering from the Politecnico di Milano - Italy in 2003, and his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the Università degli Studi di Milano - Italy in 2006. His doctoral dissertation dealt with multilayer formats for music representation. His research interests include symbolic music encoding, computational musicology, computer-supported music education, preservation and exploitation of intangible cultural heritage. Concerining these fields, he is author of about 70 scientific papers. As a member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Computer Generated Music, he actively worked on the IEEE 1599 standard, and for his contributions he received an official award from the IEEE Computer Society. Currently he is a member of the W3C Music Notation Community Group and of the MIDI Association. He is cooperating as a Peer Reviewer for international journals (ACM Journal on Computing and Cultural Heritage, Computer Standards & Interfaces, International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning, etc.) and conferences (CSEDU, ICMC, etc.). Moreover, he is a member of the Program Committee of the International Conference on Computer Supported Education (CSEDU), of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Computer Sciences and Applications (JCSA) and of the Editorial Management of the Scientific Journal on Digital Cultures (DigitCult).
