“Bioluminescence” is a mystical journey of sound, which display’s the world of bioluminescent creatures that live in the great depths of our oceans. “Bioluminescence” is primarily made for an art installation project, in which both light-art and the “Bioluminescence” piece attempt to trigger our senses to experience this journey. There is a second version of the piece made for concert performances.
The Eleventh International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference (ISMIR 2010) is held in Utrecht, Netherlands, from August 9th to 13th, 2010.
Since its inception in 2000, ISMIR has been the world’s leading forum for research on the modelling, creation, searching, processing and use of musical data. As the term Music Information Retrieval (MIR) indicates, this research is motivated by the desire to provide music lovers, music professionals and music industry with robust, effective and usable methods and tools to help them locate, retrieve and experience the music they wish to have access to. MIR is a truly interdisciplinary area, involving researchers from the disciplines of musicology, cognitive science, library and information science, computer science and many others.
After ISMIR’s scientific program on the 11th of August, the Utrecht School of Music and Technology (USMuT) presented a concert.
This 1 hour concert took place in the K&W gebouw (conservatory) in Utrecht.
