Digital interaction between body, sound and light: synergies and algorithmic connections

Sep 12, 2023 | News |

Workshop organised by Instituto Stocos in the framework fo the Premiere Open Days in Amsterdam 

21 September 2023
Workshop 10:00 – 16:30
Public walk-in 17:00 – 19:00

Location: IDlab Studio
Academy of Theatre and Dance
Jodenbreestraat 3
1011 NG Amsterdam

In this trans-disciplinary workshop we will work on some principles that are common to the arts of movement, music, and the visual arts. We will seek a cross-fertilization between these disciplines by employing interactive digital systems. We will analyze in a practical way how this study can contribute to the development of choreography, electroacoustic composition and the generation of images in real time. We will experiment with several techniques for the design of digital instruments of this type capable of expanding the expressiveness of body movement to other sensory modalities such as acoustics and visual imagery. These techniques include computerized analysis methods and the sonification of qualities of movement, models of embodied cognition, and generative algorithms from the field of artificial intelligence. Not only will we experience how these multi-modal instruments can be a valuable tool for generating immersive environments in a scenic context, but also the use of this interactive technology as a means to amplify body awareness and the limits of one’s
own physicality.

Dancers & Choreographers: experience in contemporary dance, interest in interactive
control of media.
Musicians & Composers: experience with sound synthesis and open sound control
(familiarity with SuperCollider a benefit but not requirement).
Creative coders: familiarity with creative coding platform such as processing or
open frameworks, interest in machine learning, interest in dance and technology.
