MOCO@NIME14: Movement and Computing meets Musical Interactions
Frédéric Bevilacqua, Sarah Fdili Alaoui, Jules Françoise, Philippe Pasquier and Thecla Schiphorst
IRCAM CNRS UMR STMS UPMC, Paris, France; Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada

The Moco panel bridges interdisciplinary communities in movement, computing, music and interaction. We will present the outcomes of a workshop called MOCO2014 (Movement and Computing) premiering at Ircam in Paris in June 2014. Although the primary target of MOCO is movement and computing, we address a community that overlaps with the NIME community, sharing topics on expressivity, embodied interaction, interactive machine learning, compositional modeling and generative systems to name a few. We are interested in creating a dialogue between researchers and artists involved in these communities, as well as the larger community interested in the intersection between arts, science and technology. The panel will include contributors to MOCO alongside researchers and artists in the NIME community that explore the space between sound and movement. Our goal is to share research concepts and to develop future relationships that will be beneficial to both communities.  Friday 4th July from 3-6pm, Goldsmiths Cinema
