Workshop Leader & Multimedia Programmer.
Multiple dates & Locations.
In the Techestra Workshop I like to explore the musical expression potential of widely spread technological gadgets like Smartphones, iPads, Wii Remotes, Kinect sensors, Guitar Hero Controllers. Participants in this workshop are challenged to create their own multimedia instruments, first by going out on an active audio/video sampling of their surroundings and then by controlling it with their favorite high tech interface.
The main concept behind this project is a clear inversion of the usual relation of people, especially children, with this kind of technology: through their metamorphosis into ensemble musical instruments these tools no longer promote isolation and competition.
