|[Nettime-nl] [ STEIM ] reacTable lecture|
reacTable lecture STEIM presents the reacTable lecture. The reacTable is a state-of-the-art multi-user electro-acoustic music instrument with a tabletop tangible user interface. Several simultaneous performers share complete control over the instrument by moving physical artefacts on the table surface and constructing different audio topologies in a kind of tangible modular synthesizer or graspable flow-controlled programming language. The instrument was developed by a team of digital luthiers under the direction of Dr. Sergi Jordà. The "Interactive Sonic Systems" team is working in the Music Technology Group within the Audiovisual Institute at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona Spain. Its main activities concentrate on the design of new musical interfaces, such as tangible music instruments and musical applications for mobile devices. Date: Tuesday Oct 31 Venue: STEIM, Utrechtsedwarsstraat 134, Amsterdam Time: 20.00 hour Entrance: free Reservations and more information: firstname.lastname@example.org or 020-6228690 Bios: Sergi Jordà <http://www.iua.upf.edu/%7Esergi> holds a PhD in Computer Science and Digital Communication from the Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona, where he teaches computer music, audio programming, HCI, and interactive media arts. As a luthier and improviser he likes to invent new digital musical instruments without forgetting to make music with them. His music has been released on various labels and compilations, he has composed for different instrumental setups and for films, but he prefers the immediacy and volatility of free improvisation. As a researcher, he has written many articles, books, given workshops and lectured though Europe, Asia and America. As a digital media creator, he has also worked extensively in performances and installations in collaboration with other artists. Martin Kaltenbrunner <http://www.iua.upf.edu/%7Emkalten> is a researcher and Ph.D. candidate working in the Music Technology Group within the Audiovisual Institute at the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Spain. His research covers auditory and tangible user interfaces and interactive sonic systems - topics, which he has been teaching at various european universities. Currently he is mainly working on the reacTable*, a novel electronic music instrument with a tangible user interface.
