Network Music Festival

A hi-tech musical weekender // 26-28th September 2014

Full Performance programme available

Our full performance programme is now online here!

New to the bill are JesterN, John Wild & Thibault Autheman, Henrique Portovedo and BEER.

Artist and scientist JesterN will perform his piece Fragmentation which uses EEC technology to track the performer’s brain wave. The perform acts as an avatar within a computer-generated maze, with sound and visuals generated from the brain signals disturbing him on his quest!

Performance artist John Wild and algorthmic composer Thibault Autheman perform a piece that explores and interacts with the abundance of wireless internet networks, 3G and 4G smarphone networks, blue tooth and GPS systems and other high-speed lines which create an invisible geography of wireless communication channels.

“Spaces”, performed by saxophonist Henrique Portovedo, tackles the concept of Augmented Music Performance, including the effect on communication when interaction  between performer, sound and visuals is mediated  via networking processes.

University of Birmingham’s laptop ensemble BEER (Birmingham Ensemble for Electroacoustic Research) is a live electroacoustic performance group who research network music performance and live coding. The group will perform an improvised piece where they write and hack each other’s sound generating code live in the performance space!

Watch out in the next couple of days for our installations, talks and workshops line-ups!
