IJART addresses arts and new technologies, highlighting computational art. With evolution of intelligent devices, sensors and ambient intelligent/ubiquitous systems, projects are exploring the design of intelligent artistic artefacts. Ambient intelligence supports the vision that technology becomes invisible, embedded in our natural surroundings, present whenever needed, attuned to all senses, adaptive to users/context and autonomously acting, bringing art to ordinary people, offering artists creative tools to extend the grammar of the traditional arts. Information environments will be the major drivers of culture.
Topics covered include
- New media arts, science and technology
- Interactive/visual theatre, neurobiological base of acting, digital/wearable cinema
- Augmented performance in dance
- Artificial intelligence-based art practice, web art and postmodernism
- Using analysis of artworks in conjunction with AmI to produce novel objects
- Using AmI to promote the creativity of a human user
- Autonomic sensor networks and wearable computers in the performing arts
- Computer vision and optical tracking for music and dance performance
- Cognitive intelligence and natural intelligence for the arts
- Collaborative distributed environments
- Evolutionary art systems that create drawings/images/animations/sculptures/poetry/text
- Evolutionary music systems that create musical pieces/sounds/instruments/voices
- Choreographing media for interactive virtual environments
- New media actors, new media aesthetics
- Social and ethical issues in the arts and technology

Indie music and mental health
3 October, 2023
Music can be healing for all of us, but what about the mental health of musicians themselves grappling with the challenges of their working lives? Research in the International Journal of Arts and Technology has looked at the emotional and psychological challenges apparently faced by almost three-quarters of jobbing musicians. Stress, anxiety, and depression are all high on the agenda it seems and part of the problems arise because of the highly competitive nature of the music industry and earlier in the world of music education competitions. Crismary Ospina Gallego, Maria Nuria Lloret Romero, and Valeria Herrero Ruiz of the Universitat Polytecnica de Valencia, in Spain, delve into the connection between the pressures of music education competitions and the alarming rates of mental health issues among musicians. The work reveals how these competitions can trigger negative emotions and conditions detrimental to artists, including isolation, loneliness, anxiety, stress, and even aggression [...]More details...
Musical emotion detector
5 October, 2023
Research in the International Journal of Arts and Technology outlines a new approach to the recognition of the emotional content of music, addressing many of the challenges in this field and opening up the possibility of classifying music more accurately for efficient retrieval. Fanguang Zeng of the Academy of Music at Pingdingshan University, China, explains how his approach based on multiple data fusion achieves an accuracy of up to 99% and takes less than 14 seconds per task [...]More details...
Selected authors will be invited to elaborate on their research topic and submit the results to the journal for review and potential publication.
