Join us at our next Light Bytes instalment, 'brown bag' (bring your own lunch) informal event with in-progress updates from each of our successful Curiosity Awardees, followed by questions from the audience and informal networking. Creative Scotland will be sharing their plans for the next phase and garnering interest from the audience. Creative Scotland will be inviting BBC and The Space representatives along with other stakeholders and partners.
In-progress talks from the following Curiosity Awardees;
Talk: 12.55-1.15pm Drake Music Scotland & Alex Horowitz
“To support the learning of pulse, rhythm, note matching, page scanning and other basic musical skills, we will create a fun Figurenotes app that you can use on a mobile tablet device to play a sequence of musical games. It will encourage the creative aspect of music right from the start, and can be used to engage the public as a way in to music.”
Talk: 1.15-1.35pm Glasgow Short Film Festival & Dennis and Debbie Club
“The planned prototype is a virtual reality application targeted at mobile phones, with the aim of showcasing innovative ways to present short films and moving image art in VR. The work will present an existing piece of moving image work in a new way specific to VR; inviting the viewer to step inside an alternate version of reality.”
Talk: 1.35-1.55pm Leith Theatre & Jack King Spooner
“We would like to develop a game work that documents the stories of Leith Theatre, from the memories people have of it to the concerts and performances that went on and the stories regarding the building itself. The work will be a two dimensional, interactive piece that will be browser-based thus developed for dissemination over the internet.”
