Proceedings of the Workshop on Ubiquitous Music

The X Workshop on Ubiquitous music will be held in Porto Seguro, BA. Activities include work sessions to be held from June 29 to July 1, including scientific communications by international scholars, performances and artistists. The cycle of Workshops on Ubiquitous Music promotes theoretical, artistic and technical discussions aiming at conceptual, technological and artistic explorations of current and future ubimus initiatives. The event targets the development of a joint research agenda centered on topics such as sustainability, social impact and expanded access to musical creative practices.

Since 2007, the Ubiquitous Music Group (g-ubimus) works on the consolidation of pervasive music as a research field. The g-ubimus is a multidisciplinary network of research groups from Brazil, Europe, North America and Oceania. The Workshop on Ubiquitous Music gathers researchers from different fields to discuss concepts, methods and results of ubimus research. Its goals encompass a common agenda of research centered on topics such as sustainability, social impact and amplified access to creative music making. The Tenth Workshop on Ubiquitous music will foster new collaborations among research groups through artistic, theoretical and technical discussions. Furthermore, it will encourage the development of ubimus practices in the South of Bahia, consolidating a new hub of partnerships among research groups in São Mateus (UFES), Vitória (UFES) and Porto Seguro (UFSB).
