Analogous Interactions @ International Computer Music Conference :: June 1-5, 2010 :: New York City :: Call for Works — Deadline: December 31, 2009.
Analogous invites proposals for presentation at Analogous Interactions events for the International Computer Music Conference, taking place at Stony Brook University, in association with New York University, and the Electronic Music Foundation of New York City. Works should explore the intersection of computer music and emergent phenomena — including, but not limited to, generative sound- and video-works, performative ecologies and installations, live-coding and musical improvisation, reality-based games and social experiments, biomedical hacking and new technology, artificial intelligence and chaordic systems. Works should be “nondeterministic”, having an unpredictable and/or live element, and should be appropriate for a performance, an installation, or a social event. (Both works-in-progress and finished works will be considered.)
Visit here to submit work for ICMC 2010. Applicants may submit more than one work, however, a separate proposal must be made for each. Select “Analogous Interactions” for AI-related works. The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2009.

ABOUT ANALOGOUS PROJECTS
Complexity theory is not new to art or to our culture. It migrated from computer science and biology to economics and art and, with the advent of the world wide web, it invaded our collective subconscious. Analogous seeks to support complexity-driven art and artists playing under this conceptual umbrella of “Interaction Art”. Progress occurs by metaphor and analogy: Their hope is (by bringing together people and projects irrespective of media and genre) to enable philosophical crosstalk. Analogous events and performances have been reviewed in The Wire, Make Magazine, Time Out New York, and The Village Voice. They received a Village Voice Best-of-NYC Award in October 2008 for “Best Arts Organization Centered Around Recycling”.
