The 2012 International Computer Music Conference will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 9-15 September (dead line for submitting papers and music is 15th February). It is organized by IRZU – the Institute for Sonic Arts Research and supported by the Faculty of Computer and Information Science as well as the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana. IRZU is a young non government organization, based on an interdisciplinary concept and is conducting artistic productions in the field of electro-acoustic music / inter-media performances and installations, as well as audio technology research and educational activities. The ICMC 2012 will be held in cllaboration with our annual sonic arts festival EarZoom which is becoming a referential international platform for discussing the latest developments within audio technology research well as critical and conceptual approaches in sonic arts practices.

The conference welcomes the submission of a wide range of papers and music, covering all aspects of technical, creative and aesthetic issues around the use of computers in music. The theme of the 2012 conference is “Non-Cochlear Sound”, which can be understood as an analogy to the Duchampian notion of non-retinal art. The aim is to investigate the potential of sound as a medium and further, the potentials of music in conjunction with new technologies to create new possibilities of artistic expression, which could create a closer relation to language and consequentially, enable generation of meaning and production of knowledge.
