The proceedings of SMC 2013, July 30 - August 2, 2013, are peer-reviewed and include the contributions from 275 authors from all over the world.
The theme for SMC this year is "Sound Science, Sound Experience." During the past five decades, the domain of music acoustics has widened from studies of the acoustics of musical instruments and voice, including basic elements of musical perception and performance, to investigations of how humans experience and interact with sounds and music. Increasingly, the knowledge is put into industrial, societal and psychological perspectives. The age-old dream of bridging science and art has found new and bountiful ground in the field of Sound and Music Computing.
SMC 2013 is jointly hosted by the Sound and Music Computing Research Group at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), and the Department of Composition, Conducting and Music Theory at the Royal College of Music (KMH) in Stockholm, Sweden. KTH was responsible for the scientific part, and KMH hosted the music performances.
