Designing and performing future instruments

A talk from EMF 2016 by Alessia Milo and Christian Heinrichs

On Sunday August 7, 2016 at in Stage B

The talk presents examples from the experience of two researchers dealing with the design and craft of technology for performing sound through instruments or installations.

Using electronic components, microcontrollers and other sensing devices we will present our findings in the field of real time sensing and processing for aesthetic purposes.

Examples include the design of expressive instruments informed by physical processes and provocative site specific interactions and visuals: from sonified brooms to performable squeaky doors, ultra-low latency light sabers, a winged spectre seducing her audience to dance, and more.
