    Lalya Gaye is a researcher working at the Future Applications Lab, Viktoria Institute (Göteborg, Sweden) and a PhD candidate in informatics at the University of Göteborg. She has a BSc in physics from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, and an MScEng in electroacoustics from the Royal Institute of Technology KTH in Stockholm, Sweden. 

    Lalya’s prototyping-based research explores new territories of everyday creativity enabled by ubiquitous and mobile computing. It is at the cutting edge of mobile music research, with a focus on technology for mobile music creation, and a unique insight into its design and use in the real world. 

    Her work has been presented at various conferences and festivals (such as CHI, NIME, DIS, Cybersonica, UIST, and Ubicomp), covered by the press and largely blogged on the internet (Wired, Receiver, Metro, Near Near Future, Networked Performance, Purselipsquarejaw, etc). Besides her participation in various program committees of music and entertainment technology conferences (NIME, ACE, MMT, etc) and in panels about mobile media and digital music (Cybersonica’04, DIS’04), she is actively involved in the development of the emerging mobile music community and is co-organising the 2nd international workshop on Mobile Music Technology at the NIME’05 conference, together with Lars Erik Holmquist and Atau Tanaka. She is also a member of the newly started Pervasive and Locative Arts Network (PLAN), and of a couple of sound-art and new media collectives in Göteborg, Sweden.
