Games Arcade – UNLIKELY PLACES

Games Arcade is a networked sonic art piece, that aims to explore and integrate a remote aural space into a specific performance framework . In this piece, a remote performer broadcasts ( using mobile technology) different sonic events that are characteristic of an arcade. This transmission, forms part of a larger framework, that establishes a dynamic improvisational scenario (plot of events), between this location and the concert hall; where each element of a laptop trio is assigned a function, according to spatialization, sampling and filtering of the live source material.
