Greenlee to appear at NIME 2014
A performance work by Shawn Greenlee (Assistant Professor, Foundation Studies) has passed the peer review process for presentation at New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME), the premier international conference on designing human-computer interfaces and interactions for musical performance.
This year the conference will be hosted by the Embodied AudioVisual Interaction research group at Goldsmiths, University of London from June 30 – July 4, 2014.
Greenlee’s accepted work “Emerald Tablets” revitalizes discarded interfaces (digitizing tablets from 1996) with recent developments in embeddable, single-board computers. The performer’s drawing gestures are mapped to erratic, feedback-driven synthesis networks and signal mixing procedures. It is an improvisational piece where the performer learns the gestural correspondences to sonic circumstances while playing; and drives the piece forward based on emergent dynamics. A primary aim of this work is to explore new directions through resuscitating interfaces categorized as deficient or electronic waste.
