Call For Papers

ISSTA 2019: Perform! Call for works and papers, deadline June 7th


Irish Sound, Science and Technology Association International Festival and Conference

CIT Cork School of Music, Union Quay, Cork City, Ireland



Oct 31st and 1st Nov 2019



Keynote Lecture and Performance: Robert Henke

Keynote Workshop and Performance: Ellen King (Gash Collective, IRE)



Performance haunts our electronic music and sonic arts.



The technologies which facilitate our sonic creations transmit, but also sometimes obscure, the gestures of our sound production. Speakers, microphones and interfaces could be said to displace as they transmit or transduce. How much of the electronic music we hear is actually performed? How have our technologies changed our ideas of performance?



In the post-digital age, we often see an intermingling of technologies, terminologies and approaches, encompassing electroacoustic/computer/electronic music and sound-art. The terminology and descriptors are now becoming irrevocably entangled as a surge of new performers rise amidst the deluge of new hardware and software tools. As this cross–pollination occurs, the so-called cultural underground that originally supported this music appears to be very much ‘overground’ and alive, peddling its wares (equipment as well as music) with increasing prolificacy and achieving ever–increasing globalised acceptance. Should a new language be invented to define and discuss this music, or should the existing one be augmented? Or should we simply stop, listen, and enjoy the performance?



In 2019, ISSTA returns to Cork, to be hosted by the CIT Cork School of Music in association with Cork Sound Fair. The small city centre is teeming with live music performances, from gigs in small venues and pubs to regular festivals that welcome thousands of visitors to the city. Its musical history is rich in diversity. The Arcadia Ballroom, the Cork Orchestral Society, the Jazz Festival, the Opera House, among others, have all brought national and international performers to audiences in the city. In the 21st century the City has experienced a musical Renaissance and today Cork has a wide array of active promoters and venues. We look forward to welcoming artists, technologists, theorists and other researchers to discuss the issues above at ISSTA 2019 in Cork.



Submission deadline is June 7, 2019; (midnight Irish and UK time).

Submission is via the Easychair system. Submitters should set up an Easychair account.
