Trends at NIME – Reflections on Editing "A NIME Reader"

This paper provides an overview of the process of editing the forthcoming anthology "A NIME Reader - Fifteen Years of New Interfaces for Musical Expression." The selection process is presented, and we reflect on some of the trends we have observed in re-discovering the collection of more than 1200 NIME papers published throughout the 15-year long history of the conference. An anthology is necessarily selective, and ours is no exception. As we present in this paper, the aim has been to represent the wide range of artistic, scientific, and technological approaches that characterize the NIME conference. The anthology also includes critical discourse, and through acknowledgment of the strengths and weaknesses of the NIME community, we propose activities that could further diversify and strengthen the field.
