Graphic Ships is a live audio/visual event, built from interactions between audience and performers. Sound artists and musicians perform from an ever changing graphic score generated by data from the performance environment.
Remote artists participate via telecommunication technology, the graphic score serving to connect them with the venue over global distances. The interactive visuals become a vehicle, a means to transport creativity between individuals.
For the Network Music Festival performance, local artists will be joined by artists in New York and various sites in France. The score will be controlled by brave members of the festival audience and an experienced remote user who will guide beginners through the score’s interactions.
