Event description

Description

We celebrate the successful completion of the Meta Gesture Music project with this concert and CD release. From 2012-2017, our work was generously funded by the European Research Council, resulting in a body of research in gesture and music and making possible a series of concerts, lectures, and gigs including BEAM@NIME and the EAVI Nights. The concert brings together some of the artists who have been instrumental in this work and the CD is comprised of tracks by them and also includes several other artists from the scene. The concert programme is:

  • Sarah Nicolls performs Suspensions for gestural sensor and piano, originally premiered at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival 2009. http://sarahnicolls.com
  • Laetitia Sonami returns to London from San Francisco after a performance of Eliane Radigue’s OCCAM IX in 2015 at Goldsmiths to premier a new work for the Spring Spyre instrument and Rebecca Fiebrink’s Wekinator machine learning system. http://sonami.net
  • Atau Tanaka performs Myogram, an 8 channel piece that sonifies the neuron impulses of the performer’s muscle activity, after presenting the piece last year at the ZKM in Karlsruhe, Ars Musica Brussels, Sonar-MHD Barcelona, and Resonate Belgrade. http://www.ataut.net
  • Tom Richards premiers a new work for the Mini Oramics machine, a digital version of Daphne Oram’s Oramics machine. http://minioramics.blogspot.fr
  • Renick Bell, from Tokyo, makes an extra stop on his European tour to perform a special duo with Steph Horak on vocals. http://www.renickbell.net
  • Dane Law, fresh off an album on the label Quantum Natives, and a cassette release and VR game on Genot from Prague, plays Pure Data patches on headless computers, slicing beats and reorganising rhythms. http://cargocollective.com/danelaw
  • Ewa Justka builds electronic circuits that capture light and generate noise and performs with a physical intensity that searches for the materiality in the hidden. http://ewajustka.tumblr.com
