On June and July, PHENICX was present in two interesting (and somehow related) events: the International Workshop on Movement and Computing (MOCO) at IRCAM and the 14th International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) at Goldsmiths.
The aim of this recording was to gather raw data for PHENICX research tasks, in particular for source separation and conductor’s gesture recognition research tasks in WP3 and WP4. The repertoire has been selected given the metadata availability and the focus on symphonic music material and Beethoven symphonies.
Cynthia Liem, our dissemination coordinator, has been interviewed by Mathias Lux (ITEC, Klagenfurt University) for the ACM SIGMM Records December 2013. Cynthia talks about the project objectives, the organisational layer and her personal perspective of the project.

Gerhard Widmer gave a keynote talk at the AES 53rd Conference on Semantic Audio in London, UK, titled "Expressivity as a Challenge to Semantic Audio Research".
During the presentation, there was a demo of OFAI's score following system in piano music.
We are happy to announce that PHENICX will have an exhibition stand at the ICT2013 in Vilnius on 6-8 November 2013. This is a unique opportunity to showcase PHENICX research and innovative creations to the 4000 expected visitors of the conference.
All PHENICX partners met last week in Netherlands from Wednesday Set 25th to Set 27th. The objective of this meeting was reviewing the scientific results achieved for the last 6 months and also planning all activities for the upcoming 6 months, when we are reaching the first project milestone. The meeting included scientific presentations and also demos of the several technologies under development. PHENICX partners also attended a rehearsal in Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, which was really inspiring for everyone
