>LAM is a new EPSRC funded Culture and Creativity research network.
>We are establishing a community of performers, composers, engineers
>and scientists whose aim is the development of artificial, but
>autonomous, musical collaborators.
>
>LAM believes that such a machine, able to interact creatively with
>musicians in real-time, and in any context, will have fascinating
>artistic potential, and could form the basis of the next generation
>of computer music applications.
>
>Some research topics that have been outlined are:
>
>Novel patterning algorithms from non-musical fields (e.g.
>evolutionary computation, a-life, swarm intelligence, chaos, dynamic
>networks, cellular automata, neural networks and machine
>consciousness),
>
>Real-time music informatics,
>
>Models of creative interactivity and improvisation,
>
>Musician-computer interfaces and performativity.
>
>Membership already includes prominent musicians and representatives
>from many of the above fields.
>
>New members/institutions are welcome to join and participate in our
>activities.
>
>
>First Meeting
>
>13th-14th Dec 2004, Goldsmiths College, London UK
>
>Programme: MARCEL mediated panel with US computer music luminaries,
>presentations on current research projects from LAM members,
>inter-disciplinary forum, practitioners' experience of computer
>music, composers' forum.
