Live Processing and Ghost Dancing

What happens when we dance out of phase with ourselves?
When our thoughts and ideas become visualized by a moving, shifting robotic projection object?
This performance encourages performers and audience-interactors to create dance-gesture sequences that become part of an expansive archive. Dancers and musicians create unexpected sequences of sound and motion that suggest the haunting of previous dances and others who have passed through the space long ago, and possibly, in the time to come. Sound for the interface is created by processing phrases spoken by audience members into the phase-mirror interface.
SLIPPAGE: PERFORMANCE|CULTURE|TECHNOLOGY, the innovative performance research group led by Thomas F. DeFrantz, was founded in 2003 at MIT. The interdisciplinary group explores connections between performance and emergent technology in the service of theatrical storytelling.

Art & Artificial Intelligence

We are entering into a new age of computer science research: an age where machine learning algorithms use neural networks or probabilistic Markov models to emulate thinking, and consequently, conscious creativity. It is not merely encyclopedic knowledge, but creative problem solving that will define the future of artificial intelligence. What does it mean if computers be taught to hear, write, improvise, and play music? And can they do it in a... Read More →
