Current 9 (2018)
Duration: 7’45
Format: Audio-visual

Current 9 is an algorithmic composition that integrates abstract imagery and electronic sound within an interactive platform. The piece combines analog synthesis, stop motion animations and computer graphics to form an interactive graphic score-in-motion. Custom-built algorithms interpolate data generated between sound and visual media. Forming an adaptable music composition and performance platform that is both fixed and generative in nature the artwork can take on many different forms depending on the spatial and user input at the time of occurrence.

Simulation and Computer Experimentation in Music and Sound Art

The seminar is co-organised in the context of the research cluster Music, Thought and Technology (MTT) at the Orpheus Institute (Ghent, Belgium) – a leading centre for artistic research in music. Their artist-researchers are joined by experts from international institutions across the globe, who share their experience and understanding. Algorithms that Matter (ALMAT) hosted by the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, where it is integrated with ongoing research and teaching and performing activities.

Premiere  UPIC – Graphic Interfaces for Notation ConferenceZKM | Karlshrule, Lorenzstraße 19, 76135 Karlsruhe, Germany. A host of European delegates were invited to ZKM | Karlsruhe to take part in sharing their experiences and approaches of working with graphical interfaces and notation. The conference focused on the emerging possibilities inspired by UPIC (Unité Polyagogique Informatique CEMAMu) a computerized musical composition tool devised by the late composer Iannis Xenakis (1921-2001). The conference was an opportunity to hear from the people directly involved in development and design of the original UPIC system and subsequent development of UPIC sketch.
