TEI 2019 Improvisational Environments Workshop
Composing ecosystemically in responsive environments with gestural media, objects and textures
In this workshop, participants will try their hand at a variety of tangible, embodied, and embedded sensing and feedback technologies including vibrotactile instruments, expressive mechatronics, gesturally modulated fields of light, sound, mist, and realtime steerable immersive atmospheres. Working through hands-on experience by theme, participants will be introduced to compositional and experimental methodologies. In the second half of the workshop, participants will compose together some simple “ecosystems” using the Synthesis Center’s hardware- software media choreography architecture (sc), in the iStage experimental theater-scale blackbox space.
