High Striker at NI Science Festival 2018

High Striker at NI Science Festival 2018

I was delighted to be invited to take part in this year’s CTM Festival in Berlin! Working with a diverse group of artists, musicians, engineers and choreographers we put together a showcase of performance works in an intense week of thinking, hacking and soaking up all that CTM had to offer.
Here’s ‘Ambit’, the piece created by Jennifer McClelland, Eldar Tagiev, Martjin Dirk Johling and myself.
“Ambit” explores the boundaries between our conscious thoughts and our primal emotions, breaking down the barriers between the audience and the performer.
Volunteers from the audience wear on-body sensors which detect physiological correlates of emotional state. They become the instrument, the interface to the computer and sound.
Dancers move the volunteers through different emotional states. These are used to drive the soundscape of the piece and trigger audio events, essentially ‘playing’ or ‘performing’ their emotions.

Fluoro-synthy remix for Manchester hip-hop crew the Dead Kings!

This year we got super hands-on with sound based ‘interactions’ that explain or visualised various aspects of sound, synthesis and electronics. From giant gongs to non-newtonian fluids dancing on a speaker participants can see, feel and shape sound in new ways.

So we’ve had some fun with this over the last few years at Electric Picnic festival!
Electro-myogram sensors pick up participants muscle tension and with a bit of Max/MSP wizardry controls the intensity of a series of light bulbs, all attached to our ol’ timey carnival attraction High Striker. Maximum flex to ring the bell!
It’s man vs. machine…step right up and test your strength!
