Performance Experiments Phase1: introduction

Well howdy!

Over the next three years I will periodically demonstrate my findings through a number of live audiovisual performance experiments, documenting my approaches and related issues.

The phases are as follows:

  1. addressing my background in composition and performance and current approaches;
  2. addressing the literature and assimilating theoretical concepts into performance practice;
  3. addressing the case studies / approaches and concerns of other audiovisualists;
  4. exhibition of works and findings.

Documentation will be uploaded to VIMEO for each phase and will be used to elaborate on blog postings discussing the likes of:

  • compositional and performative approaches;
  • audience and context
  • comparative works and inspiration;
  • technological affordances and impact;

plus whatever else seems relevant at the time.

So the first phase matched up with:

  • a performance as part of Tom Hall’s “Left of Left” exhibition at the Judith Wright Centre in Brisbane;
  • two performances and the presentation of my paper at the Australasian Computer Music Conference 2009 here in Brisbane.



Here is the first phase worth of  video material which I will discuss in the next few blogs.  Get acquainted and I’ll be back soon with a post about the Left of Left performance.
