​In July 2016, the Australasian Computer Music Association is joining forces with the Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology and NIME 2016 (New Interfaces for Musical Expression) to host an interdisciplinary conference at theQueensland Conservatorium on the theme of Sonic Environments.

Drawing inspiration from contemporary acoustic ecology, Sonic Environments invites composers, performers, academics, field recordists, acoustic ecologists and technologists to present research and creative works exploring the ecological, social and cultural contexts

of our sonic environments. This conference aims to expand our current understandings of acoustic ecology and the role of sound and technology in

understanding rapidly changing environments across the world. The conference theme encourages interdisciplinary perspectives on sound and aims to explore the

possibilities of emerging technologies ranging from augmented reality sound walks and generative ecological

compositions to networked performance connecting communities and immersive sound in virtual reality. We also invite

research exploring aural awareness and investigations of natural and anthropogenic sounds and their relationship with the environment.

Sonic Environments

is hosted in collaboration with NIME 2016 (New Interfaces for Musical Expression) the premier international conference in designing human-computer interfaces and interactions for musical performance.
