International Conference-Workshop on Performance and Sound Technologies
Friday March 30 - Sunday, April 1, 2012
A two-day conference and performance laboratory
held at the Antonin Artaud Performance Centre
Brunel University, Uxbridge, West London (UK)
D e t a i l e d P r o g r a m :
This symposium and performance laboratory is the second installment of the series of annually held research events at Brunel University's Antonin Artaud Performance Centre, bringing together an invited group of international theatre, performance and sound artists, musicians, digital artists, art theorists and researchers engaged in creative practices that reflect on major innovative performance traditions of the past century and their impact on current performance knowledge and physical (or physical-digital) techniques.
The programme includes evening concerts and exhibitions on Friday and Saturday, featuring among many other artists, Arthur Elsenaar, who explores the human face as a computer- controlled display device; the ambient musician and multimedia artist Thomas Köner; vocalists Jennifer Walshe and Julie Bokowiec who control their voices gesturally with complex sensor interfaces; experimental acccordionist, improviser and composer Camilla Barratt-Due; and engineer Frieder Weiss who has designed many interactive music , dance and art installations.
The lab will offer a series of parallel modules investigating the relations between choreography and software (featuring the popular workshop "Whatever Dance Toolbox", introduced by BADco., one of the most dance companies current working in Europe) sound and motion-design, movement capture and 3d digital/virtual environment navigation, light and projection architecture, dirty electronics, hacking and interactive programming.
The symposium and workshop are composed of dialogue and performance practice, intermixed with film screenings and a hands-on electronics and wearable design workshop as well as live coding sessions in the digital performance studio.
Featured participants include:
Arthur Elsenaar, Thomas Köner, Claudia Robles, John Collingswood, Julie Wilson-Bokowiec, Mark Bokowiec, Jennifer Walshe, Camilla Barratt-Due, Kate Geneviève, Jörg Brinkmann, Simon Katan, Frieder Weiss, Ian Winters, Pieter Verstraete, David Roesner, Andrew Murphy, Julian Henriques, Nick Collins, Eirini Nedelkopoulou, Darren Vincent Tunstall, Nick Till, Nicolas Salazar-Sutil, Sophia Graefe, and BADco (Ivana Ivkovic & Zrinka Uzbinec).
