This one-day workshop has a broad scope and a specific aim: to identify a research agenda for IoT and music which addresses both how IoT can benefit from the music domain and how music can further benefit from IoT.  Topics discussed will include physical computing, materiality at the digital-physical intersection, sensory heritage, and the field of experimental humanities (digital prototyping as a method) - all in a music context ranging from performance to responsible design, trust and the design of new devices and artefacts.
