The conference NIME06: New Interface forMusic Expression and IRCAM present:

A NIME06/ IRCAM workshop:

CHOREOGRAPHIC COMPUTATIONS: motion capture and analysis for dance

A unique event focusing on new possibilities for relationships between choreography and computation

Date: Sunday, 4 June 2006
Where: IRCAM, Studio 5
When: 10-13h / 14h30-17h30
Registration: required (limited seating) *direct link to registration: http://linkme2.net/7x
Fees: Full ?50 / Student ?30
Language: English

Organisers/ Presenters: Frédéric Bevilacqua (IRCAM, F) and Scott deLahunta (WritingResearch Associates, NL)

Presenters: Antonio Camurri (Professor, InfoMUS lab, University of Genoa, I), Mark Coniglio (Composer/ Media Artist,Troika Ranch Company, USA), Marc Downie (Artist and Researcher, OpenEndedGroup, USA), Myriam Gourfink (Choreographer, F), Rémy Muller (Researcher, IRCAM, F)

This workshop will focus on new innovations combining motion capture and computer-based techniques with choreography and performance, an area in which an international group of artists and researchers has been breaking new ground. The software artists and programmers involved are exploring a range of heterogeneous computer concepts and approaches from agent-based aesthetics to the development of new tools and pathways to support collaborative composition (using software platforms and environments such as EyesWeb, Isadora, MnM and Fluid). Through their close collaboration with the choreographers (e.g. Trisha Brown, Myriam Gourfink and Dawn Stoppiello), a shared understanding of movement and gesture is evolving to support the application of complex algorithmic procedures to equally complex choreographic creation. Together these practitioners are carving out fresh territory for correspondences between choreography and computation. We have invited some of these artist/ researchers here to the present their recent collaborative work in the context of this NIME06/ IRCAM workshop.
