The second International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation was dedicated to issues in theoretical and applied research and development in Music Notation and Representation, with a focus on computer tools and applications, music creation and cognition.
Until very recently, the support provided by computer music developers and practitioners to the field of symbolic notation has remained fairly conventional. However, recent developments indicate that the field of tools for musical notation is now moving towards new forms of representation. Moreover, musical notation, transcription, sonic visualisation, and musical representation are often associated with the fields of musical analysis, ethnology, and acoustics. The aim of this conference is to explore all recent mutations of notation and representation in all domains of music.
This year we extended the call to include cognition as well as ontological issues of performance practice arising from the use of traditional and/or graphical notation systems in live electronics.
