In the menu there are options for vegetarian and vegan guests.

The organization of the gala dinner is as follows.

  • Buses will depart from the usual meeting point at Hotel Mediodía (coordinates: C854+9P Madrid), and take the participants to the restaurante AYNAELDA (Calle los Yébenes, 38, 28047 Madrid).
  • Departure time from the meeting point: 8:15 pm.
  • Buses will take the participants from the restaurant back to the meeting point at 11:00 pm.
  • The dinner cover is 36 euros.
  • Please, pay in cash to the local organizers (Paco or the volunteers) during the conference (preferably when registering and receiving your conference bag).
  • To participate in the dinner, please, send an e-mail to fmartin(at)etsisi(at)upm(at)es before 8:00 pm, June 18th. We have to confirm the number of seats by that date. After that date, there will be limited flexibility to include new guests.
  • If you are vegetarian or vegan, please, let us know so that we can arrange your choice of food with the restaurant.

1 Welcome to Madrid

The Seventh International Conference on Mathematics and Computation in Music will be held June 18-21, 2019 at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and Real Conservatorio de Música de Madrid (RCSMM), Madrid, Spain.

MCM is the flagship conference of the Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music (SMCM), whose official publication is the Journal of Mathematics and Music (JMM).

MCM 2019 continues the tradition of biennial international conferences of the Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music held on alternating sides of the Atlantic. In this occasion it is hosted by the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería de Sistemas Informáticos (ETSISI).

The conference brings together researchers from around the world who combine mathematics or computation with music theory, music analysis, composition and performance. MCM provides a dedicated platform for the communication and exchange of ideas amongst researchers in mathematics, computer science, music theory, composition and performance, musicology and related disciplines.

The disciplines of Mathematics and Music share an intertwined history stretching back more than two and a half millennia. Nowadays computer science points towards new approaches to these disciplines, often with transformative e↑ect.

In addition to the scientific program, there will be concerts open to both conference participants and the general public.

4 Musical and Social Program

4.1  Math’n Pop Concert

Moreno Andreatta, piano and voice
Gilles Baroin, visual representations

Composing chansons based on texts by poets has become a popular genre within the ↓eld of songwriting. Building on this tradition, Moreno Andreatta adds a mathematical dimension to this genre: using permutational tools and graph-theoretical methods, he creates an original universe where poetry and music meet in a new dialogue. Combining piano and voice, Moreno Andreatta introduces the audience to his original musical creations. The concert will be accompanied by visual representations of the underlying mathematical constructions, conceived and realized by ’mathemusician’ Gilles Baroin.

4.2  MA - Music of Change

Naoki Kita, violin
Guerino Mazzola, grand piano
Heinz Geisser, drums and percussions

The free jazz collaboration duo of drummer Heinz Geisser and pianist Guerino Mazzola has lasted twenty years now. In April 2017 they had a series of six highly acclaimed concerts in Tokyo and Yokohama, resulting in three CD productions including Ma, with the collaboration of Japanese violinist Naoki Kita.

Geisser and Mazzola strongly adhere to the idea that music should transform with virtuosity gestures and thoughts in the imaginary time of our consciousness into real sound structures that shape the body of time instead of following any external baton. Naoki Kita's performances include a blend of original music and improvisation and the transformation of the duo in trio has created new avenues.

4.3  Integral of Diabelli’s Piano and Guitar Sonatas and Manuel M. Ponce’s Sonata for Piano and Guitar

Emilio Lluis-Puebla, piano
Octavio Alberto Agustin Aquino, guitar

Mathematicians Emilio Lluis-Puebla and Octavio Alberto Agustin Aquino also have parallel careers as accomplished musicians. Together they have played and recorded the integral of Diabelli’s piano and guitar sonatas, which they will present together with Mexican composer Manuel M. Ponce’s sonata for piano and guitar
