Xcamera talk: Doug Van Nort

Friday, February 28, 1pm - Doug Van Nort: From Tuning Presents to Turing Presence - Distributed Networks of Listening and Sounding

@Fresh Ground, 256 King Street East Kitchener

Doug writes: Drawing on recent projects, in this talk I will discuss my approach to creating performative contexts using computational media that engender improvisational, intersubjective engagements and distributed senses of creativity agency. Building upon my life as an electroacoustic composer/improviser, this work emphasizes collective emergence and immersion of the non-visual senses as a means to amplify (rather than mute or mask) a sense of presence-in-the-world for individual and group. Machine agents, interactive media and telematic connections are integrated as material conditions and inter-actors that serve to enhance, complexify and challenge this larger network of activity.
