NIME: New Interfaces for Musical Expression
Creating new performance tools for digital music.

In the eighth annual NIME concert, performers will play a series of newly designed electronic instruments that aim to keep the “live” in the live performance of digital music.

Electronic music is usually played with a keyboard and mouse. Laptop musicians often sit at a desk and give performances that feel like watching someone work in their cubicle. The idea behind NIME is to go beyond the mouse and keyboard and beyond even piano keys and drum pads. It seeks to present performance systems that make the most out of the new opportunities for musical expression that digital technology offers.

This year’s NIME concert will feature such innovations as a musically enhanced sewing machine, sonified floor tiles, performative knitting needles, turntablism for live instrumentalists, electronically controlled cartoon antics, novel realizations of the rock guitar, and a host of other exciting approaches to the creation of music.

NIME is an end-of-semester performance by 16 graduate student artists from the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU. It will be presented by the instructors Greg Shakar and Hans-Christoph Steiner. The performers are Drew Burrows, Karla Calderon, Jayoung Chung, Lara Grant, Ted Hayes , Lee-Sean Huang, Ari Joseph, Michelle Mayer, Ariel Nevarez, Winslow Porter, Anthony Ptak, Paul Rothman, Jason Safir, Milena Selkirk, and Carolina Vallejo.

‘Design for UNICEF’ harnesses innovative thinking from graduate students at New York University

NEW YORK, USA, 4 December 2009 – ‘Design for UNICEF’ is an interdisciplinary design programme where graduate students examine some of the challenges UNICEF faces and work in groups to research and prototype solutions. The graduate class is taught by Professor Clay Shirky and is a collaboration between UNICEF and the Interactive Telecommunication Programme at the Tisch School of the Arts in New York City.
