A standing wave is a resonance phenomenon, where we see something that appears to be static, but a world of activity lies beneath. Conceptually, we might even think of this in terms of structural or sculptural support on which the audible character of our worlds is built. The span of computer music can be seen in a similar way: threads and tendrils of interconnected developments and advances leading to a continuously advancing discipline of artmaking through the manipulation of the ever-present 1’s and 0’s.

Inspired by the standing wave that forms in the River Shannon in Limerick City – the ever-moving yet ever-present body of water that acts as the spine of UL campus – we ask you all as contributors to consider the implications of this idea in your submissions as both computer musicians and researchers at ICMC 2022 – be like a kayaker on the river and explore the countless waves that oscillate in time but remain strangely steady in space!
