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.
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 (http://www.motioncomposer.com/en/who-we-are/), 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.
Professor Petri Toiviainen, a world leading music researcher from the University of Jyväskylä, will present an overview of the emerging field of sound and music computing (SMC).
Can you stand still for 6 minutes? Come and join us! In connection with our open day the Institute for Musicology invites everyone to join the Norwegian Championship in standstill.
At by:Larm 2015 the first Norwegian Music Hackathon will take place, a concept which is organized on many of the biggest music festivals around the world. Free entrance and open for everyone.
Princeton professor Dmitri Tymoczko is giving a lecture in June entitled:
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.
