CMMR is pleased to announce the following events which we believe will be of interest to our delegates.
Location: Queen Mary University of London (Maths Lecture Theatre)
Date: Monday, 18 June 2012
Event Link: http://soundsoftware.ac.uk/soundsoftware2012
Software and data have increasingly become an integral part of our research in the audio and music community. In the process, the way that we do research in this field is changing, with methods and software becoming increasingly complex, and reliable datasets becoming increasingly important.
The first SoundSoftware one-day workshop on "Software and Data for Audio and Music Research" will include talks and discussions on issues such as robust software development for audio and music research, reproducible research, management of research data, and open access.
Location: Imperial College London
Date: 21-23 June 2012

Supersonix is an international celebration of the art and science of sound in all its complexity. Taking place in London’s cultural heartland in 2012, the city’s Olympics year, it will lead academic and mainstream public audiences on a journey through experiments, lectures, workshops and interactive technology within and around the Exhibition Road cultural quarter’s world-famous colleges, museums, concert halls, cultural institutes, historic buildings and research centres. The first major project in the area following completion of the landmark £28m Exhibition Road redevelopment scheme, Supersonix comprises:
- artist residencies and visiting professorships at the Science Museum, V&A Museum and Royal College of Art (Jan-Jun)
- site-specific work and new commissions (June)
- a three-day international conference (in partnership with the Society for Literature, Science and the Arts Europe) bringing together 300 artists, scientists and practitioners in the field of sonic art and science (21-23 Jun)
Music Day, an established day-long free music festival across the iconic indoor and outdoor spaces of the Exhibition Road area (23 June)
Location: Brunnel University
Date: 22-24 June 2012
Event Link: http://www.beamfestival.com/
The BEAM festival will be held at Brunnel University on 22-24 June 2012. This promises to be a fun and innovative event which may interest delegates who will stay in London over the weekend of 23-24 June 2012, that is, right after CMMR 2012.
BEAM is a high-tech music weekender, a playground of homemade instruments and sonic installations, where you can listen to, watch and learn how to create your own physically living electronic music.
BEAM was devised by Artistic Director Sarah Nicolls to explore the potential physicality of electronic music. The focus on electronic music being created LIVE is explored through a programme of performances, demonstrations, installations and workshops. BEAM brings together a global audience of artists, researchers, DiY electronics builders and enthusiasts, from beginners to veterans.
