In this keynote talk, Anna will present her insights into designing and evaluating networked algorithmic spaces that support collaboration, participation, non-hierarchical structures and Do-it-yourself (DIY) practices for Sound and Music Computing (SMC) from a Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) perspective. She will dissect the term New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) to propose instead the design and evaluation of 'NISEs', to accommodate the wider world of Sound-based music and art so that we can embrace other prototypes and systems that take into consideration other characteristics than 'new', 'interfaces/interactions', 'music' and 'expression'. We will look into a project that repurposes NIMEs as an educational tool; an AI-enhanced live-coding self-built environment that works as a customisable sampler of crowdsourced sounds; and a project related to creating natural NIMEs as interventions to the environment through sonic arts and sonification. The projects contribute to the vision of democratising SMC through the creation of technologies that can empower the community to solve real-world problems.
