Auckland will host the next annual International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) in June 2022.
A common objective among researchers and practitioners in the NIME community is designing, building, performing and evaluating new musical instruments and other types of musical interfaces.
The 21st edition of NIME, set to attract about 200 delegates, will be hosted by The University of Auckland, which led the conference bid supported by Auckland Convention Bureau (ACB) and Tourism New Zealand.
The theme for the 2022 conference is ‘Decolonising Musical Interfaces’. International researchers and musicians will gather to share their knowledge and explore how music technology can extend beyond empirical science and rethink the Western consumeristic imaginary of music technology innovation.
The conference was secured by Fabio Morreale, lecturer and director of research at The University of Auckland’s School of Music.
