A NIME Primer:
Michael Lyons, Ritsumeikan University Kyoto, Japan

Attending NIME for the first time can be an overwhelming
experience. Beginners may find it difficult to make sense of
the vast array of topics presented during the busy program
of talks and posters, or appreciate the significance of the
wide variety of demos and concerts. This half-day tutorial
is intended to provide a general and gentle introduction to
the theory and practice of the design of interactive systems
for music creation and performance. Our target audience
consists of newcomers to the field who would like to start re-
search projects, as well as interested students, people from
other fields and members of the public with a general inter-
est in the potential of NIME. We aim to give our audience
an entry point to the theory and practice of musical inter-
face design by drawing on case studies from previous years
of the conference. Past attendees of the tutorial have told
us that they gained a helpful perspective that helped them
to increase their understanding and appreciation of their
first NIME.
