*MUME 2019 Concert - 2nd CALL FOR WORKS*

The 7th International Workshop on Musical Metacreation
June 17-18, 2019, Charlotte, North Carolina

=== Important Dates ===
submission deadline: March 24, 2019
notification date: April 28, 2019
concert dates: June 17 evening, 2019


Creators of musically metacreative systems are invited to submit works for
a concert of musical metacreation, as part of the 10th International
Conference on Computational Creativity, ICCC 2019, at the University of
North Carolina Charlotte. 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-organization; systems that perform music
data mining to create remixes, and so on.

*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 real-time or
   pre-compose music for performers, as well as automated DJ systems.
   - Systems that use AI methods for other creative objectives, such as
   harmonizing, intelligent looping, or finding suitable matches for a target
   - Systems that generate lyrics.
   - Music that uses evolution, emergence or ecosystemic concepts.

*Submission Process*

Please submit a two page A4-portrait PDF describing your work before the
submission deadline. Email your submission to chairs at musicalmetacreation.org.
Submissions should *not* be *anonymized.* 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).
   - Provide a link to any additional documentary material such as audio or
   video recordings, or online software (highly recommended).
   - Give credits and biography (name, affiliation, short biography up to
   150 words).

* 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*

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 MuMe workshop.

A schedule for performances, rehearsals and soundchecks will be made
available in the week before the concert.
