Dr. Marinos Koutsomichalis

Following a series of technological breakthroughs and the proliferation of new, cloud-based media, listening in the 21st century has become dynamic, fragmented, interactive and distributed. Contemporary audiences are typically expected to traverse (big) music databases and, employing several overlapping interfaces, to resynthesize, rather than to merely access, content. At the same time, data sonification, audification, and mapping technologies have become topical to a wide array of artistic and functional subareas such as computer music, digital art, scientific auditory displays, and Human-Computer-Interaction. New paradigms for the composition, the distribution, and, eventually, the experience of music have emerged and, in certain cases, standardized. Relevant technologies and methods are to be discussed, both in historical retrospective, as well as with respect to contemporary artistic and scientific practice.
