I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all – especially the SMC2016 organisation and staff – for the learning experience! The seminars, workshops, concerts, coffee breaks, poster presentations, etc… All great!

Now in Hamburg getting ready to leave after a wonderful time at SMC2016. I am so honored to have shared a concert with Nicolas Collins, David Kim-Boyle, and Arne Eigenfeldt, and to have seen the work of Cat Hope, Jason Freeman, Georg Hajdu and many many MANY others! It was truly amazing to have been invited to share my work with so many talented and wonderful people, and I want to thank Georg Hajdu and the rest of the SMC committee for making that happen! Looking forward to carrying over the GOOD VIBES on my return to the states, and to see and hear more work by the fantastic cast of characters here in Hamburg. And of course, 1000 thanks to Benedict Carey and everyone else for making SMC run like a well-oiled machine!

vielen Dank  nochmal für die schöne Zeit bei Eure Konferenz. Wir waren begeistert über die Hilfsbereitschaft Euren sympatischen Technikern, die von dem Medienhochschule kamen, und wir haben Euch und Euren Team zu bedanken, dass alles so problemlos und angenehm für uns lief. Wir waren selber mit Vorstandsarbeit sehr eingespannt, und könnten selber nicht so viele Veranstaltungen sehen,  aber wir haben von allen Seiten gehört, dass das Conference dieses Jahr eine extrem hohen qualtitativen Niveau hatte, in vergleich zum anderen Jahren. Glückwunsche über die gelungene Arbeit. Wir waren sehr stolz, ein Teil davon sein zu können, und unseren MV dort halten zu können.

The Hamburg team achieved a remarkable finale for this first iteration of CoPeCo. The workload for the conference and concerts was considerable and I am grateful for your efforts. From the outside view, everything flowed well and there was a good spirit all around.

Thank you.
Bill Brunson

Thank you for inviting to me be a be a keynote at SMC and be involved in the music program and the summer school. I highly commend you for your efforts with the conference and summer school, i thought you did a wonderful job, it was a great experience. Great concerts, great keynotes, a great mix of the creative, the technical, the historic and the contextual. Congratulations! I also found being on the CoPeCo very interesting, so thanks for that too.
Cat Hope

SMC 2016 was a unique opportunity to connect with the growing animated notation / real-time notation community, exchange ideas, and hear some incredible performances of emerging work in this area. The conference as a whole was well organized and engaging, and I thank you again for inviting me to take part!
Jason Freeman

It was certainly the most organized conference I’ve ever attended – things went incredibly smoothly.

Thanks!
Arne Eigenfeldt

Thank you all, it really was a special experience!
Grig Burloiu

Vielen Dank also für die wunderbare Konferenz! Mir scheint sehr vieles hat super geklappt. Leider konnte ich nur zu wenigen Vorträgen kommen und hab nur einige Konzerte erlebt, aber soweit ichs gehört habe, ist scheint die Sache insgesamt extrem gut verlaufen zu sein, oder? Offensichtlich hat vieles gepasst. Zu meiner Show hab ich auch nur extrem gutes Feedback bekommen (die anderen halten zum Glück die Klappe) und ich bin gespannt auf das Tide-Material.
Jacob Sello

erstmal: Die Summer School und die Konferenz waren echt klasse! Großen Lob und vielen Dank an euch!
