Interacting with Body, Electronics and Space


Interacting with Body, Electronics and Space is a two day event of discourse, performance and demonstrations. Atau Tanaka, currently Edgard-Varèse Guest Professor at Technical University Berlin, and Henrik von Coler, director of the Electronic Music Studio at the TU, invite researchers, emerging as well as international artists in order to approach the questions which emerge in the field of musical interaction through technical means and the concept of embodiment. How does the body act in space through sound? How might technology mediate this? How do we create new means of interaction and what musical or performative acts result from these developments?
The first day (16 July) will be an afternoon symposium presenting talks, discussions, and demonstrations of projects in new instrument building, audiovisuals, and material thinking. Prof Tanaka will present a keynote address on the phenomenology of musical performance.

The second day (17 July) will be an evening concert where the instruments presented in the first day will come to life in a musical setting, played on a multichannel sound system from the TU, installed in the Curt-Sachs-Saal at the Musical Instrument Museum. The event is supported by the DAAD and made possible through the cooperation between the Staatliches Institut für Musikforschung and the TU Studio, respectively the Audiocommunication Group.
