Goldsmiths' Embodied Audiovisual Interaction group 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 ticket price includes a copy of the CD you can pick up at the event :-)
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
