Showcase and Participative Workshop Presentation

This year, the residency for contemporary music and electronics is focussed on interdisciplinary art featuring sound. This brief presentation session will feature both individual and collaborative works: two soundscape creations by resident artists, and one collaborative project developed by Kinetech Arts.

 

Workshop presentation of the multimedia dance production AI Sensorium, by Daiane Lopes da Silva in collaboration with Weidong Yang, Vidhu Aggarwal, and Patricia Alessandrini. This presentation will show how sounds of the body - flexing muscles, a beating heart - are transformed into sounds and rhythms. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore the technology used, and hear their own heartbeats. 

 

Cube by Robert Allison: A live soundscape transduced from a procedurally generated colourscene. The visuals and audio combine to immerse the audience in this highly abstract piece.

 

My sound is torn by Sarah Westwood: The piece uses sounds from field recordings and was created for the ‘Being Human’ Festival at Horniman Museum and Gardens, London. For the recording, I walked around the Horniman Museum’s nature trail with the intention of focusing on my movement. The weather was blustery, and I felt my movements were like whispers against the wind and rain. After the first walk, I created a graphic score from this experience, and played the score on objects found on the trail during my second walk, which is included as a postlude to the piece.
