CDM needs your help. The massive, international, annual New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) Conference is descending on New York City. That’s great. There are only two problems: 1) it’s too huge. 2) Most CDMers are not in New York. That’s where you come in.

If you’re traveling to town to attend NIME, to present at NIME, or if you happen to already be here in New York and are going to the NIME events or the concurrent New York Electronic Arts Festival (which seems itself to be perhaps a new creation in itself), let us know what you’re doing. Got a paper? Send us a link and some quick notes on what it’s about. Got a piece premiering? Tell us why it’s cool and link us to whatever documentation you’ve got. Taking photos? Send them to us via Flickr. Attending an event? Write up something, and we’ll run it. It’s one of those few times where I’m happy to post anything you send, provided you write a bit about it — so you’ve got instant publicity for yourself, in the process.

Too often, these huge conferences happen and only the people in attendance can keep up with what’s going on … and sometimes not even they can. I do appreciate your help, and will do my best to keep up here on CDM.

    Arrrrgh! I missed this one completely. I should have made plans to be there. On the bright side, I'm takin' the kids camping at disneyworld (family time is a good thing once in a while). They have some pretty good electronic arts there…

    Well, you NYers and other fanatics have fun.

  • Hey Guys and Gals.

    I'm going to NIME 2007.

    I'll be going along with Youngmoo Kim to represent the Music & Entertainment Technology Lab at Drexel's College of Engineering.

    check us out!

    No papers, projects, or performances to present at NIME: perhaps that will give us the opportunity to do better reporting. The MET Lab will be happy to take pictures and ask questions.

    We will be missing the first day, but we'll see everything else.

    I'm excited to see the LEMUR robots. If anyone who's not going wants me to look into something specific, send me word.
