INTER-FACE is the second International Conference on Live Interfaces. INTER-FACE is dedicated to problematising convergences and divergences between different understandings of performance technology. It seeks to expose a variety of motivations and approaches, and discuss how specific understandings of ‘liveness’, ‘immediacy’, ‘timing’ or ‘flow’ manifest in performance with digital media. INTER-FACE will discuss the principles and assumptions governing interaction design, including perspectives from art, philosophy, product design and engineering. INTER-FACE seeks to create a space of multiplicity, so as to problematise how different spheres of concerns inform different approaches to interface design.

Proud to help Adriana Sá and Alex McLean to make this happen this week in Lisbon.

M.M.M.M. – A Sound and Visual Installation

Paper published at xCoAx 2014, available as PDF.

M.M.M.M. is a generative sound and visual installation developed as a temporary exhibit for the Puppet Museum of Porto. It leans on the history of the museum and of the company that created it, the Puppet Theater of Porto, and develops a distributed sound composition with generative characteristics, built from sound recordings created through the manipulation of puppets and scenic objects from the archives of the company.
