"The stimulation of bio-organisms through sensory (aural/visual) and electrical stimulation in feedback loops is presented by programming stimuli in real time and in a definite time-rhythmic sequence — music is art most involved in real-time organization of sensory stimulation." - Manford L. Eaton
The culmination of a week of collaborative development at the MusicMakers Hacklab sees participating artists move from the laboratory to the performance venue. Just-created performance designs, circuits, code, and ideas will be put to the test in front of a live audience as a multidisciplinary group of creative performers share the work they've constructed over the course of the CTM festival week. Expect new work in live musical performance, movement, visuals, and surprises.
The MusicMakers Hacklab is a weeklong open, collaborative laboratory hosted by Peter Kirn of Create Digital Music and musician and media artist Leslie García. Now entering its 3rd edition within the CTM Festival, the Hacklab takes on the theme "Tuning Machines", relating to some of the technological ramifications of CTM 2015 "Un Tune" theme. It allows practitioners from a range of disciplines to find new ways of exploring hybrid systems of human body, biology, and sound.
