Call for Works: The Musical Metacreation Concert at the Eighth
International Conference on Computational Creativity, Atlanta, Georgia, June
2017Key Dates

April 20th: submission deadline.
May 10th: notification.
June 18th: concert rehearsals.
June 19th: MuMe concert.
June 19th–23rd: International Conference on Computational Creativity.

(MuMe academic workshop is on June 19th and morning of 20th).

Creators of musically metacreative systems are invited to submit works for
a concert of musical metacreation, as part of the Eighth International
Conference on Computational Creativity, at the Georgia Institute of
Technology, Atlanta. Submitted works can be of any musical style but *must
involve a performative element* and *must involve the use of computational
creativity techniques in the creation of the work*. Examples from previous
MuMe concerts include, but are not limited to: reproduction of musical
style using machine learning; the evolution of musical structures using
interactive genetic algorithms; rule-based systems; systems based on
emergence or self-organisation; systems that perform music data mining to
create remixes, and so on.

Information on the selection committee, musicians, concert venue and
available equipment will be made available soon; all up-to-date information
can be found here <http://musicalmetacreation.org/mume-2017-concert/>.
Types of Work

Any work related to MuMe that can be presented in a performance context
will be considered. This includes:

   - Improvising agents that perform alongside live musicians.
   - Automated composition systems that generate music in realtime or
   pre-compose music for performers, as well as automated DJ systems.
   - Systems that use AI methods for other creative objectives, such as
   harmonising, intelligent looping, or finding suitable matches for a target
   - Systems that generate lyrics.
   - Music that uses evolution, emergence or ecosystemic concepts.

We are also interested in submissions of musebots
<http://metacreation.net/musebots/> and other types of interactive
installation works relevant to MuMe.
Submission Process

Please submit a one page PDF describing your work to Arne Eigenfeldt:
arne_e at sfu.ca.

Your submission should:

   - Describe the work;
   - Explain how the work relates to the MuMe theme;
   - Give a relatively detailed technical description of the system*;
   - Give detailed performance requirements. As necessary, this may include
   a stage plan, equipment needs, technical support needs, and performing
   musicians (you can use additional PDF pages for any supporting items);
   - A link to any additional documentary material such as audio or video
   recordings, or online software (highly recommended);
   - Credits and biography (name, affiliation, short biography up to 150

* It is common to receive submissions that are highly ambiguous about what
the proposed system actually does. *Works will be rejected if this is the
case.* The description does not need to be highly technically detailed, but
it should remove any fundamental ambiguity.
Selection Process

*Submissions should not be anonymised.*

All submissions will be reviewed by three independent members of the
selection committee. Once these reviews have been completed the reviewers
and the chairs will discuss these works and reviews. The chairs will
provide a meta-review, the three original reviews, and a final decision.
Reviewers will be anonymous to the authors, but not to each other. The
final decision lies with the chairs, in consultation with the committee.
Upon Acceptance

Artists are required to be in attendance and set up their own equipment. At
least one artist must register for the ICCC conference and MuMe workshop.

A schedule for performances, rehearsals and soundchecks will be made
available in the week before the concert. Rehearsals will be on the Sunday 18th
June unless otherwise arranged. Soundchecks will be prior to the concert on
the afternoon ofMonday 19th June.
