We presented the project during the Artistic Reaearch Forum in Bergen on September 24th 2018. The presentation consisted of a short introduction of the concept, tools and methodologies followed by a 20 minute musical performance showing several of the crossadaptive techniques in an improvised context. The performance was followed by a commentary by Diemo Schwarz and concluded with a plenary discussion.
The project held a concert at Dokkhuset on May 26th. This concert was made as a presentation of the artistic outcome, towards the end of the project. Assuming there is no “final result” of an artistic process, but still representing an image of where we got to during this process. To give some insight into different types of outcome, I decided to have three different ensembles, and also to use one presentation of a student production.
The program for the evening was:
Michael Duch – double bass
Oeyvind Brandtsegg – live convolver
Kim Henry Ortveit – electronics and percussion
Maja Ratkje – vocals, electronics
Oeyvind Brandtsegg – crossadaptive processing, Marimba Lumina
Ada Mathea Hoel – presentation of crossadaptive video and audio production
As part of the ongoing research on crossadaptive processing and performance, we had a very productive seminar in Trondheim 2. and 3. November (2017). The current post will show the program of presentations, performances and discussions and provide links to more detailed documentation of each session as it becomes available. Each part will be added as the documentations is ready, so if something is missing now, do check back later. The seminar was also streamed here, and the recorded streams will be archived.
In addition to the researchers presenting, we also had an audience of students from the music technology and the jazz departments, as well as other researchers and teachers from NTNU. We are grateful for the input from the audience to enrich our discussions.
