This workshop is linked to our project on sound-producing body motion

The upcoming workshop will be a basically practical, hands-on type workshop that we believe will be very useful for our ongoing work here.  

We are much looking forward what we believe will be an informal but highly productive workshop, so hope to see you all there!

About the Electric Space Concert Series

The Electric Space Concert Series features 3D electroacoustic acousmatic music. In each concert we play modern and classic immersive and dynamic spatial music over the 47 speaker ambisonics array installed in the motion lab at the Institutt for musikkvitenskap, UIO, Oslo. Concerts 3 and 4 were a collaboration with the group “Electric Audio Unit” who specialise in the performance and programming of 3-D immersive sound.

Time and place: Oct. 13, 2015, Bevegelseslab

Robert Wechsler (choreographer) and Andreas Bergsland (composer) will present a workshop concerning interactive technologies and approaches for turning human movement into music. Together with colleagues (, we have developed a new hardware/software device for persons with disabilities called the MotionComposer and in the process, we have created a number of interactive dance pieces for non-disabled professional dancers. Our approach to human machine interface champions intuitiveness and transparency (clear causality) in the interactive relationship and differs in some important ways from the more common skeleton extraction and gesture recognition approaches, particularly as they concern kinesthesia, synaesthesia and the perception of sound and music. 

Time and place: Apr. 21, 2015 1:15 PM - 3:00 PM, Salen, U1, ZEB

Princeton professor Dmitri Tymoczko is giving a lecture in June entitled:

"Rock Logic"

Abstract: Using some of the ideas in my book (A Geometry of Music) I will outline an indigenous theory of Rock harmony, showing how these musicians uncovered a natural and deeply logical alternative to traditional harmonic procedures--one in which harmonies tend to go "backwards."  I will show that similar ideas can be found in the music of the late 16th and early 17th century, including Morley and Schutz. From this point of view, the "functional" harmony of the baroque and classical period represents a departure from a larger norm.
