Music in New Technologies Forum by Vocalypse Productions, Halifax Nova Scotia


November 15th to 18th - Halifax, Nova Scotia

Vocalypse Productions in association with the University of King’s College and Upstream Music Association presents MINT – Music in New Technologies Forum, November 15th to 18th, 2018.

This inaugural forum will focus on the following questions. How can advances in new technologies change the experience of making music (the musician’s perspective) and listening to music (the audience’s perspective)? What are the musical and performative implications and applications of the vast array of new technologies that are now emerging?

The main thrust of MINT will NOT be the presentation of academic papers. Rather, we will solicit presentations that include demonstrations, performances, audio/visual samples, and as much music making as possible.



We are accepting proposals for performative lectures, presentations, and performances (10 to 15 minutes) from established or emerging artists which focus on 3 main themes:

• The voice and new technologies
• Improvisation and new technologies
• New Musical Interfaces

If you have an idea which does not fit into the above categories we would still love to hear from you. MINT is open to topics such as artificial intelligence and music, music and the mind, or any other topic which taps into music and  technologies which are forward thinking and current. Are you using old technologies in new ways? Send us a proposal! 

Performances will be peppered throughout the conference. We will accept proposals for performances of a through composed or improvised works which incorporate new technology for consideration in our performance schedule! Tell us about it.

What we require:
• A recent biography
• Would you like to present a performative lecture, an interactive exhibit, or a performance of your work with new technology? Give us a title!
• A proposal which outlines the topic you would like to speak about and the amount of time you require.
• 2 to 3 links to videos of your work, if applicable.

Deadline for submissions is September 1st, 2018

Notification of application status: September 8th, 2018
For those who would like to attend the forum but are not accepted to present/perform or do not wish to apply to present/perform you can register any time by buying a pass via the ticket link below.


MINT will be dedicated to as much networking, interfacing with technology, and performance as possible. Registration fees for the full forum are $150 and include access to the entire forum, performance opportunities, networking meetings, a catered light breakfast and lunch.
