Dear all,

this is to inform you that we have extended the deadline (15th March)
for the 14.3 issue of the eContact journal, which I'm Guest Editor

Due to the specificity of this issue, we are unable to consider
proposals exclusively focused on traditional gestural controllers.
Although critical case studies including gestural control along with
biosensing techs are welcome.


Below the original call in case you missed it.

best wishes,


eContact! extends an open call for contributions to an issue focussing
on the use of the body in electroacoustic performance practice,
coordinated by Guest Editor Marco Donnarumma. Performers, composers
and others are encouraged to contribute their perspectives on the role
or position of the body in experimental practices of musical

Submission deadline: 15 March 2012
Publication: 15 April 2012

Suggestions for contributions include, but are not limited to the
following ideas:
- Use of Mechanical Myography (MMG), Electromyography (EMG) and other
similar biological signal measurements in performance
- Scoring / notation of body-related performance
- Sound Art dealing with the body and biological aspects of performance
- Development of DIY, biological-based, Interactive Musical Systems (IMS)
- The definition / augmentation of Self on stage by means of biotechnologies
- Cognitive aspects of embodied interaction between the biological
body and computer
- Composer—Technology—Performer: definition of roles?
- Live electronics vs. fixed media in biotechnological performance practice
- Historical overviews and reflections
- Critical perspectives on gesture-based “human-computer interaction”
- The sound of flesh…

We also welcome other contributions that engage in a discourse on the
relation between biophysics and music. Feel free to propose other
