<nettime-ann> [OKNO] 27-29/11 Symbiosis Computer Improvisation

OKNO - artist run organisation for art and media technology - Brussels                                              

" ...The improviser must effect real-time sensory and perceptual coding, optimal attention allocation, event interpretation, decision making, prediction (of the actions of the others), memory storage and recall, error correction, and movement control, and further must integrate these processes into an optimally seamless set of musical statements...." (Pressing 1988)

You are invited to join the interdisciplinary workshop organised by Ofer Smilansky (Art Science Interfaculty , The Hague, The Netherlands) together with the organisation for art and media technology OKNO (Brussels, Belgium) for artists working in the field of live improvisation with computers. This event will take place at OKNO (Koolmijnenkaai Quai des Charbonnages 34, Brussels 1080) from Friday 27 November at 14:00 to Sunday 29 November at 18:00.

The workshop will consist of a combination of discussions and live sessions: both elements will allow participants to share ideas, discuss challenges, and discover new practices. This event will bring together experts and non experts, professionals and amateurs, all of them sharing the same interest and having experience in computerized improvisation. We want to bring musicians together to play, only prerequisite is that you use a computer in some way when you perform.
Sunday night there will be a closing session, open to the public.

If you are interested in participating in the workshop or at least part of it, let us know as soon as possible!
Travel expenses, accommodation and meals can be covered within the limits of the available budget.
We have a limited number of participants, to be part of the workshop, send a short bio and motivation to ofersmi@gmail.com.

Looking forward to your reaction!

Ofer Smilansky and the OKNO-team.
