20 Dec 2006 - 21 Dec 2006 All day Anglia Ruskin University


Collaborative Performance Technology workshop

20-21 December
Anglia Ruskin and Cambridge University
Call for Participation

The Cambridge Centre for Research in Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH), in association with Anglia Ruskin University and the Cambridge University Centre for Music and Science, invite participation in a fully-funded one day “collaboration masterclass” for advanced performance technologies.

The technical focus will be on the use of SuperCollider and Max/ MSP, combined with a range of novel physical materials and sensors to augment real-time performances. Participants will be expected to have significant prior experience with SuperCollider or Max/MSP, although a small number of artists and composers will be invited from other performing backgrounds.

The one day workshop on December 21 will be studio-based, and will emphasise practical experimentation in a collaborative setting, with periodic reviews of progress and findings through the day. The event will start with dinner on the previous evening, in order to define groups of collaborators, establish overall goals and plan the programme of work.

Participants will be encouraged to take hardware away after the workshop, refining and developing the discoveries from the event. Those who do so, along with other participants, will be a invited to return to Cambridge about 12 months after the workshop, in order to present the results to a wider audience.

This event is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, as an activity of the ICT Methods Network.

Please contact Neil Grindley for further details.

If you would like to be considered for participation in this event, please go to the methods network workshop and seminar participation form. Please explain briefly why you would benefit from attending this event, and what sort of experience you have had with SuperCollider, Max/MSP, or other performance technologies.

Participants will be selected in order to achieve a good balance of experience and skills.

Julio d'Escrivan, Anglia Ruskin University
Richard Hoadley, Anglia Ruskin University
Nick Collins, University of Sussex
Ian Cross, Centre for Music and Science, University of Cambridge
Alan Blackwell, Crucible Network for Research in Interdisciplinary Design
