NIME 2013

I’m currently enjoying a fascinating week in Daejeon, South Korea, at the international New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) Conference at KAIST (the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology). I’m here, in part, to present my piece Shin no Shin for iPad, but after just a couple of days of attending workshops, performances, and presentations, my brain is filled to almost bursting with new ideas.

Being around all of these great creative minds has been a wonderful inspiration for me to get off my butt (in my post-dissertation defense complacency) and get back to work in keeping up with all of my international colleagues.

Bravo to all for bringing their A-game, and for reminding me to bring mine.

Art, to be fully appreciated, must be true to contemporaneous life. It is not that we should ignore the claims of posterity, but that we should seek to enjoy the present more. It is not that we should disregard the creations of the past, but that we should try to assimilate them into our consciousness.
