[Nettime-nl] [ STEIM ] Announcement lecture, demo, discussion series

STEIM presents on Monday, 20th October at 20.30h:

one of the foremost inventors and thinkers from the
explosive, contemporary
gestural re-cognition and motion tracking scene !

InfoMus Lab
DIST - University of Genova, Italy

his EyesWeb open platform redefines a
new generation of computer vision in music, multimedia, dance and 
multimodal environments.

Gesture is the carrier of a set of temporal/spatial features 
responsible of conveying expressiveness. The concept of expressive 
gesture includes musical, human movement, visual (e.g., computer 
animated) gesture.
Modelling and communication of expressive and emotional content in 
non-verbal interaction by multi-sensory interfaces is receiving a 
raising interest from research and industry communities. Music 
performance and full-body movements are first class conveyors of 
expressiveness through gestures.

Automatic analysis and syntesis of expressive gestures can open novel 
scenarios in the field of interactive multimedia, especially in 
artistic contexts, and represent at the same time an opportunity and a 
challange for interactive systems designers.

The seminar will present the EyesWeb open platform (www.eyesweb.org, 
free download from internet) developed at InfoMus Lab and will include 
aspects related to experiments, modelling, control and application of 
expressiveness in interactive music and new media performance. Short 
video excerpts and real-time demos using our EyesWeb open software 
platform will be also presented.

Antonio Camurri is the founder  and scientific director of the InfoMus 
Lab at DIST - University of Genoa. His research areas include musical 
informatics, computational models of expressive non-verbal 
communication, multimodal intelligent interfaces, interactive systems 
for music and dance (EyesWeb project). Systems and research developed 
at InfoMus Lab are used in public performances, such as Luciano Berio's 
operas "Outis" (Teatro alla Scala, Milan) and "Cronaca del Luogo" (1999 
Salzburg Festival). He is Coordinator of the three-year EU IST-20410 
project MEGA (Multisensory Expressive Gesture  Applications ) and of 
research and industry contracts.
