Edward Lun, Lewis Commence, Jungwon Jung – Human Interaction Synthesizer
This project is based on the concept of the creation of the three main sensory receivers: visual, auditory and kinesthetic, and how they interact and manifest themselves in relation to movement of the human body.
The installation is built with multi-sensors, when the participator walks through different parts of the sensitive area, certain frequencies or a phrase of music will be played through the preset multi directional speakers, creating a spatial sound experience that is informed by the movements made by the composer.
This process will result in the equilibrium of the two different elements. The sets of sensors would be setup to track the movements allowing us to transfer this movement into sound and visuals. Thus, It creates a different function and application that takes both elements and illustrates them in a reconstructed way.
Derck Littel – Sound Sniffer
As a result of a collaboration with Royal College of Art, I propose to do an interactive musical performance or demo of a newly designed instrument, the Sound Sniffer, this tool audifies high frequency electro-magnetic fields to be found in any electric source, such as neon lights, computers, phones, alarm systems, and so on.
By exploring the communicative possibilities of this medium the poster/demo aims to demonstrate:
– The interactive possibilities of the tool in relation to lived experience.
– How new technologies can provoke awareness of the potential health issues in relation to sound
Last november 2016 I premiered this instrument at the opening of the new Design Museum in London and below is a Soundcloud link to the live recording. https://soundcloud.com/derck-littel/design-museum-take-3
Junhyeok Shin – Bridges
For the mankind who is living in this age, connection is one of the most significant communications for us to stepping forward. In terms of this subject, It can not be denied that ‘IRCAM’ is the important center of this platform. Through this creative interchange for the artists and researchers, people naturally participate in here to exploring the sound and technology. In this context, I realized that these extraordinary explorations have made it possible for to find a densified bridge: between artists and researchers, between us and the public. On this idea, my poster will examine to visualize the ‘bridges’ which is densified between the gaps through all the communication on this platform. Many of these visualized ‘bridges’ are the symbol of creative and valuable exchanges for the artists and researchers who explore and work in contemporary times through this platform.
Also at the same time, In terms of the futural perspective of ‘IRCAM’, It represents the direction of the bridges to be explored.
