I’m really excited to be working with Hester Reeve on a project funded by the AHRC digital transformations call, bringing together live artists and live coders for a dialogue, hopefully leading to new ideas and approaches within both fields. Live artists work with their body as a medium, and live coders work with abstract symbols, and it will be fascinating to see how these seemingly completely different practices approach one another.
The project is called Live Notation: Transforming Matters of Performance, and the first event will be a performance involving Hester and I on Thursday 22nd March as part of the soon-to-be-announced LoveBytes festival (more on that in my next post). We are not sure what we will do yet, except it will be in a large cinema and involve sound-based dialogue in some way. It will be an experimental performance (as in risky and prone to failure) and we’ll learn something whatever happens.
Later on we will be holding workshops leading to a big conference/performance event around June/July.
