Welcome to the 1st international and interdisciplinary conference MUSIC AND TECHNOLOGIES held in Kaunas, Lithuania, 11-12 November 2011. We hope that this conference will extend the ideas and geography of the participants in the interdisciplinary music community such as CIM (Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology) or ISMIR (International Society for Music Information Retrieval) and also enlarge discussions in the field of music technologies. We welcome researchers and practitioners from the humanities (analysis, art, composition, cultural studies, education, ethnomusicology, gender studies, history, linguistics, literature, media, performance, philosophy, prehistory, theory), sciences (acoustics, biology, empirical psychology and sociology, mathematics, medicine, perception, physiology, psychoacoustics, physiology, statistics), musical data (creation, modelling, processing, searching) and especially in music technologies (broadcasting, hardware, producing, recording, software).


The main themes of the conference cover the general aspects of music communication via technologies and include music composition, performance, analysis, perception and cognition. The interdisciplinary combination of humanities and the sciences should be the focus of your presentation.


It is possible to participate as an active or passive participant. Active participants are invited to deliver a 20 minutes talk (with an additional 10 minutes for discussion); a poster presentation or a demonstration. Passive participants (making no presentations) are allowed to join all of the conference programme, i.e., the same as active participants.
