Ubiquitous Music is an interdisciplinary research area that combines methodologies from music, computer science, education, creativity studies, human sciences and engineering. The Thirteenth Workshop/Symposium on Ubiquitous Music will be held on 2-4 November at Ulster University, Derry, Northern Ireland (UK) in hybrid format (mostly on-site, but with an online strand).
Researchers working on ubiquitous music topics are invited to submit proposals, initial results and complete research projects. The workshop will adopt English (on-site conference, workshop and music strands) and Portuguese, Spanish and English (online) as working languages.
The city of Derry is closely associated and has a strong tradition of engaging with issues of social justice, both nationally and globally, having been at the centre of the Northern Ireland Civil Rights movement in the 1960s and 1970s. As such, we would particularly welcome topics which relate to issues related to inclusion and equality of access within ubiquitous music and audio-based creativity.
We will have both on-site and online strands, and will strive to ensure access to the event is not limited by delegates’ ability to pay, though discounted rates related to conditions in their current location and/or situation (including delegates who are independent scholars and/or artists or technologists), and, where appropriate, through fee waivers.
Submission categories: Paper, Panel, Music, Demonstration/Workshop.
- Suggested Topics (not exclusive)
The symposium will explore topics which address ubiquitous music from perspectives including technological, design, social, creative/aesthetic, educational/pedagogical, and related contexts, such as:
Ubiquitous music, accessibility and inclusion
DIY approaches electronics and design approaches for ubiquitous musical practices (including circuit bending, hardware hacking, DIY design in modular synthesis)
Web/mobile and app-based approaches to audio/ubiquitous music creation/performance/sharing of creative practice
Socially-engaged musical practices using ubiquitous music technologies (applied music/workshop-based and collaborative creative practice)
Everyday musical creativity and ubiquitous music
Liveness and/or models of communication in ubiquitous music
Improvisation and comprovisation in ubiquitous music
Creative computing and computational creativity in ubiquitous music
Ubiquitous music in music/audio education/pedagogies of ubiquitous music/audio practices
Embodied and/or ecological approaches to music/audio practices
Musical human-computer interaction (HCI) in ubiquitous music
Accessible/inclusive design in ubiquitous music
Networked/telematic performance/interaction/sharing of creative practice
Sonification, musification and auditory display in Ubimus

Ubimus approaches to web and mobile audio
Ubiquitous music and concepts of musical practices
