“Automatic Orchestra” is an audio installation orchestrated by networked machines and people. In the months leading up to the festival, a group of students and alumni from University of the Arts Bremen (HfK) and Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID) will work with PROTOSEQ synthesizer units, an augmented version of the CHEAP, FAT and OPEN (CFO) audio platform. The group explores algorithmic composition, networked music, and affects of sensor interaction.
For the duration of the festival, an orchestra, comprised of 12 PROTOSEQ units, will be programmed, equipped with sensors, and assembled into a networked organism adapted to the site-specific situation.
Resonate will be hosting this exciting collaborative educational project in the form of a private workshop during three days + a live demo and exhibition during Resonate Live and Resonate Conference.
