Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

  • Adaptive classification method of electronic music based on improved decision tree   Order a copy of this article
    by Hongyuan Wu, Lin Zhu 
    Abstract: In order to improve the accuracy of electronic music classification and shorten the classification time, this paper proposes a new adaptive classification method for electronic music based on an improved decision tree. Firstly, a robust principal component analysis method is used to remove noise from electronic music and improve the quality of electronic music. Secondly, the electronic music signal is segmented using time windows, and the classification features of electronic music are extracted using short time Fourier transform. Finally, the decision tree model is improved by using fuzzy analytic hierarchy process to calculate fuzzy association parameters. Construct an improved decision tree classification function for electronic music, calculate the optimal solution of the classification function, and complete the adaptive classification of electronic music. The test results show that the proposed method can quickly and accurately classify electronic music, with a maximum classification accuracy of 98.6%.
    Keywords: Improving the decision tree; Electronic music; Adaptive classification; Fuzzy correlation parameters.

  • How Visual Merchandising Influences Generation Z Purchasing Behaviour in Supermarkets   Order a copy of this article
    by Matilde Aires, Álvaro Lopes Dias, Leandro Pereira 
    Abstract: The competitive landscape between brands and retailers requires the optimisation of strategies to increase consumer purchases. Visual merchandising elements can effectively influence consumers to buy certain products or brands, even if unplanned. Different generations have different needs and require tailored strategies. This study examines the impact of visual merchandising elements on the impulse buying tendencies of Generation Z. The variables analysed include store layout, colours, lighting, in-store promotions, store ambience and salesperson interactions. A literature review explored these variables, consumer behaviour and the characteristics of Generation Z. Nine hypotheses were then formulated and tested using an online questionnaire. The survey received 206 responses from Gen Z, exploring their perceptions of these elements and their impulse buying behaviour. The results showed that in-store promotions and store ambience have a positive effect on Generation Z's impulse buying behaviour, while lighting has a negative effect. Store layout also influences their impulse buying tendencies when mediated by store ambience.
    Keywords: visual merchandising; Generation Z; consumer behaviour; impulse buying.

  • Gamelan, Technology, and Controversy   Order a copy of this article
    by Aris Setiawan 
    Abstract: This research aims to generate recommendations on how art education institutions, particularly in the Department of Karawitan (traditional Javanese music at the Indonesia Institute of the Arts), respond to the latest developments in music technology. The importance stems from ongoing technological advancements in traditional music, particularly gamelan, leading to divergent opinions within academia. Using a phenomenological approach, the study delves into the conscious experiences of individuals and groups to uncover reasons for the intricate relationship between technology and gamelan music development. Through experimentation, the research explores enhancing gamelan instruments, like the kendang, using the multi-pad percussion a device adopted by gamelan and campursari music groups. A critical perspective examines complexities arising from music-technology fusion. The output offers informed recommendations to preserve gamelans heritage, guide institutions like the Department of Karawitan, and assist music scholars in effectively navigating gamelan technology.
    Keywords: gamelan; technology; controversy; tradition; kendang; multi-pad percussion; MPP; art education institutions.

  • Revitalizing Indonesian Cultural Tourism through Automated Indonesia Traditional Music Instruments Performances Post-COVID-19   Order a copy of this article
    by Rudy Susanto 
    Abstract: Three Indonesian traditional musical instruments consisting of angklung, bonang, and suling were created to be played automatically during exhibitions to promote and attract tourists to learn about Indonesia during the COVID-19 pandemic. The systems were driven by the use of motors controlled by minicomputers and microcontrollers that could be accessed using smartphones based on Android operating systems. The selected songs chosen to be played are 100% accurate. It is also stated that 81% of the respondents are willing to learn and enjoy more about Indonesia after seeing the system.

  • "Whispers of the Machine" the organic form of digital sculpture based on 3D modelling   Order a copy of this article
    by Wei Xu, Veerawat Sirivesmas 
    Abstract: With the development of digital technology, 3D modelling is widely used in the creation of sculpture. This paper summarises the development of digital sculpture and the related digital technology knowledge and characteristics in the context of digital sculpture. It aims to analyse relevant artworks, digital technologies, and literature through qualitative research methods and experimental methods. The data and results are derived by exploring specific creative practices in combination with organic form features. Finally, this paper systematically summarises the artistic characteristics of the four organic forms: organic representation, organic abstraction, organic generation and organic integration. It also summarises the merits and limitations of the organic form of digital sculpture based on 3D modelling, as well as its value, development trend and challenges. As a unique artistic language for digital sculpture, it enriches the connotation of sculptural creation and organic forms, expanding digital science's artistic edge.
    Keywords: digital sculpture; 3D modelling; three-dimensional modelling; organic form.

  • Reclaiming Narratives: Using Technology to Strengthen Underrepresented Voices   Order a copy of this article
    by Priyanka Kumari, Rajiv Bhushan, Maninder Kapoor 
    Abstract: Caste oppression is one of the biggest evils in Indian society. With the advent of digital media, there has been an increase in people engaging in caste discourse. Participation on the internet has produced a brand-new public space where activity and discord are possible. Digital media challenges Hindu castes' claim to be superior to Dalits. It helps to strengthen Dalit subjecthood again after a protracted period of inferiority. The popularity of Dalit weblogs has increased, and it can be easily differentiated from mainstream blogging. Dalits were not discussed in popular blog posts. The plight of the Dalits was brought to the world's attention by writers like Meena Kandasamy, Yashica Dutt, and Suraj Yengde. Movements like Dalit Lives Matter were sparked by the medias Black Lives Matter influence. This article aims to show how Dalits have gained a voice through internet caste discourse.
    Keywords: caste; Dalit; digital; discourse; discrimination; voice.
