TEI 2021

February 14-19, 2021 in Salzburg, Austria (and online!)

This week I’ll be participating at the Fifteenth ACM International Conference on Tangible, Embedded, and Embodied Interaction (TEI)! Research and work presented at TEI “addresses issues of human-computer interaction, novel tools and technologies, interactive art, and user experience.” I’ll be presenting our paper, Surface Electromyography for Sensing Performance Intention and Musical Imagery in Vocalists at TEI this year, which details the use of surface electromyography (sEMG) for sonification of the laryngeal muscles’ activation while singing, and how this technology can be used in a first-person interaction to provide feedback of both conscious and unconscious movement to the vocalist.

I’ll be presenting on Friday, February 19 in Session H1: Mind from 08:00 – 09:00 (UTC+00:00). The event can be live streamed on Youtube for free (thanks ACM!) and will be presented again in a recorded session later in the day from 16:00 – 17:00 (UTC+00:00).

Our paper can also be found in the ACM library 🙂
I’m looking forward to meeting members of the HCI community at TEI this year and getting an in-depth look at embodied technology in other non-musical practice. I’m especially interested in the presentations on e-textiles, which I know will be beneficial for the next stage of my PhD work (stay tuned!).
