New publication: Microinteraction in Music/Dance Performance

2012-10-26-dsc_0014b-640This week I am participating at the NIME conference (New Interfaces for Musical Expression), organised at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA. I am doing some administrative work as chair of the NIME steering committee, and I was  happy to present a paper yesterday:

Title
Microinteraction in Music/Dance Performance

Abstract
This paper presents the scientific-artistic project Sverm, which has focused on the use of micromotion and microsound in artistic practice. Starting from standing still in silence, the artists involved have developed conceptual and experiential knowledge of microactions, microsounds and the possibilities of microinteracting with light and sound.

Sverm video #2

microsoundsAs I wrote about last month, the Sverm group has teamed up with video artist Lavasir Nordrum. The plan is that he will create four short and poetic videos documenting four of the main topics we have been working on in the Sverm project. The production plan for the videos is quite tight: we shoot content for the videos during a few hours in the middle of each month, and then Lavasir publishes the final video two weeks later. Last month he made the piece Micromovements. This month’s work is entitled Microsounds.
