Interesting things from ICMC 2006 day 2:
Golan Levin presented a very interesting project on spectrographic performance, where a large table with a projected image is “scanned” sequentially and synthesized as a frequency spectrum.

Masatoshi Hamanaka (JST, Tokyo) held a great presentation of a spatialization project were the user wears headpones with orientation sensors, and can listen to various instruments in a mix by turning around and holding a hand close to the ear. The video he showed was great, so I hope he will put it online.
In between the concerts, people enjoyed the nice weather outside the auditorium.
There were some interesting pieces during the evening concert:
