III_cablesThis three day workshop explores methodologies for practice and creation at the intersection of music, movement, computation, and various sensing/actuating technologies. The goals of the workshop are twofold: firstly, to examine the implicit values that inform interaction with and appropriation of technology in artistic contexts; secondly, to generate strategies for working in collaboration with technology, and as collaborators across disciplines.  We propose a viewpoint that technology is not a mediator for interaction—something to be designed to suit a specific artistic goal—but is a collaborator with a frame of reference that must be thoughtfully considered as part of the discourse of the work.

The session will begin with the establishment of a theoretical framework for interaction design and collaboration through discussion, movement and music-based practices. Each participant will present current, past, or future work with the goal of generating multiple viewpoints regarding the intersection of each of these works within our established framework. We will then guide speculative work on these projects in order to reinvigorate our practices by illuminating those aspects of them that have become invisible through familiarity.

Throughout, we will make use of the odot programming environment in Max/MSP, building on the concepts presented during the odot immersion course in the four days prior. This workshop is designed for people with a background in either music, movement, or interactive technology and a willingness to explore all three. Participants from other backgrounds are also encouraged and should contact John MacCallum (john.m@ccallum.com) and Teoma Naccarato (teomajn@gmail.com) with further questions. Attendees whose work involves software and/or hardware should bring functioning devices, and musicians should bring their instruments. Everyone should dress comfortably for movement.

_DSC5233In this intermedia and interactive encounter, the theatre is turned inside out. The dancers and musicians perform behind us; it is only by way of mirrors that we piece together moments, as if editing a live film from our own perspective. Gradually, we are offered sensory fragments: the reflection of a torso sweeping past; gentle pulsations in the floor; wandering rhythms in the live instrumentation – provoked by the heartbeat of the dancers.  It is difficult to capture anything or anyone, fully. There is darkness and stillness; there is breath; there is intense physical exertion and exhaustion.  Nothing concludes. Everything assembles and shatters. It shatters like glass, and as we piece the shards back together, unfamiliar forms emerge. MORE…
