<<< A new international conference focusing on performance in technology mediated environments >>>

<x-tad-smaller>This new conference will kick off as part of the 2006 Sonorities Festival of Contemporary Music (www.sonorities.org.uk), hosted at the Sonic Arts Research Center, Queen’s University Belfast (www.sarc.qub.ac.uk). The festival is the longest-running new music festival in Ireland that presents cutting-edge new music and features some of the most thought-provoking and controversial musicians.</x-tad-smaller>
The "mini-conference" aims to reflect the innovative approach of the festival and will, for the first time, bring together performance practitioners (from music, dance, theatre and new media), composers, and theorists in order to discuss a wide variety of topics on performances that are informed by new technologies. </x-tad-smaller>

The "mini-conference" is planned for Saturday, the 29th of April 2006 at SARC in Belfast. Paper sessions will take place in the morning and the afternoon, with two keynote speakers, a lunchtime performance and an evening concert.</x-tad-smaller>
