Pervasive Media Studio Lunchtime Talk: Introduction to FEED - live multi-touch resampling

Where: Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, 1 Canon's Road, Bristol, BS1 5TX

When: 03 February 2012 1:00pm to 2:00pm

FEED is a multi-touch music app being developed by inter-disciplinary organisation Incidental. The app enables complex, rich manipulation of a ???live feed??? of sound, drawn from the inbuilt microphone of an ipad or an audio file loaded into the app, enabling users to create complex real-time compositions from a range of sources, from musical inputs (such as a voice or orchestra) to spoken word or ???found sound??? on the streets of a city. Grounded in Incidental???s experience with schoolchildren over a range of music and new media projects, the software is designed in a simple, intuitive way so that non-specialists and younger audiences are quickly be able to create rewarding, aesthetically interesting results, and is designed for use in a large range of contexts - from live performance to music education classes or new forms of interactive soundwalk or museum tour. During this presentation David Gunn will explore the theoretical and practical background to the project and offer an exclusive preview of the first working prototype of FEED. FEED is developed with support from Arnolfini and Head For Arts. This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
