New Interfaces for Musical Expression, also known as NIME, is an international conference dedicated to scientific research on the development of new technologies and their role in musical expression and artistic performance. Researchers and musicians from all over the world gather to share their knowledge and late-breaking work on new musical interface design.

History

The conference began as a workshop (NIME 01) at the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) in 2001 in Seattle, Washington, with the concert and demonstration sessions being held at the Experience Music Project museum. Since then, international conferences have been held annually around the world:

Areas of application

The following is a partial list of topics covered by the NIME conference:

  • Design reports on novel controllers and interfaces for musical expression
  • Performance experience reports on live performance and composition using novel controllers
  • Controllers for virtuosic performers, novices, education and entertainment
  • Perceptual & cognitive issues in the design of musical controllers
  • Movement, visual and physical expression with sonic expressivity
  • Musical mapping algorithms and intelligent controllers
  • Novel controllers for collaborative performance
  • Interface protocols (e.g. MIDI) and alternative controllers
  • Artistic, cultural, and social impact of new performance interfaces
  • Real-time gestural control in musical performance
  • Mapping strategies and their influence on digital musical instrument design
  • Sensor and actuator technologies for musical applications
  • Haptic and force feedback devices for musical control
  • Real-time computing tools and interactive systems
  • Pedagogical applications of new interfaces - Courses and curricula
