About MINT

Performative Lectures, Concerts, Demonstrations, Networking

The MINT Forum 2018 is devoted to the advancement of music through new technologies and asks the following questions: How can advances in new technologies change the experience of making music (from the musician’s perspective) and listening to music (from the audience’s perspective)? What are the musical and performative implications and applications of the vast array of new technologies that are now emerging?

The main thrust of MINT will NOT be the presentation of academic papers. Rather, we are soliciting presentations that include demonstrations, performances, audio/visual samples, and as much music making as possible. During breaks between presentations, audience members and participants will have an opportunity to directly engage with these new technologies in interactive rooms.

Presented by Vocalypse Productions and in association with Upstream Music Association. Supported by the University of Kings College. Generously funded through The Canada Council for the Arts
