On sound synthesis

We are pleased to announce our call for papers for the XVI issue (2022) of Music/Technology. This issue welcomes contributions on new technological advances in sound synthesis and data sonification for music and composition, and their associated artistic/compositional results.

Guest editor: Marco Stroppa

Co-editor: Paolo Zavagna

Authors (composers, researchers, engineers or musicologists) are solicited to contribute by submitting articles that illustrate the influence between musical/sound works with their sound synthesis techniques. We particularly welcome contributions from composers/researchers.

We would like to encourage submissions of papers within the following general areas:

  • New sound synthesis techniques and their creative/musical potentials
  • How an old sound synthesis technique can be used or controlled in an innovative fashion by composers
  • The strategies that an artist has to develop to express his or her own ideas in the usage of sound synthesis.

To be more precise, this is not an issue dedicated to synth making and DIY practices, but rather to computer synthesis techniques or their control. The journal publishes original articles – mostly in English but other languages are taken into account.

All submissions are subject to peer review. Acceptance may be conditional upon changes being made to the paper as directed by the reviewers. Final versions of the accepted contributions will be published in open access on the journal web site and on paper.

For submission please send it using Firenze University Press system:

If not already registered, you should register in the system.

Do not hesitate to write if you need further information or need any assistance.

Submission deadline: 31st December 2021.

Submission format: (FUP Authors Guidelines).

Any multimedia contents (videos, images, data sheets, software, audios, scores, others) related to submissions are encouraged, and will be published online with a specific DOI on platform.
