Gassmann Electronic Music Series: Mari Kimura
21C: The Institute for 21st Century Creativity: "Listen to the Motion"
Saturday, December 7, 2019
Experimental Media Performance Lab (xMPL)
Inaugurated in 2018, the second edition of the LISTEN TO THE MOTION features the motion sensor system MUGIC™, which captures the movements of a performer’s expressive gestures. The concert presents students from the Integrated Composition, Improvisation, and Technology (ICIT) program in the Claire Trevor School of the Arts (CTSA), who have been working with MUGIC™ with Professor Mari Kimura. Prof. Kimura has been researching the use of motion sensors in performance and composition, to enable integrated human/machine relationship that could extend and create a new form of expressiveness. Since Prof. Kimura joined UCI in 2017, the MUGIC™ project has been supported by the Multi Disciplinary Program (MDP) program at the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) at UCI, where her team has been developing a new prototype of MUGIC™.
Free and open to the public.
