Interwoven Sound Spaces

The only way to discover how a connection will react is to touch it, to play it, to perform the action itself.

Network music performance, as it is commonly defined today, is the live interaction between remote musicians navigating their interaction through internet technologies. It may involve aural, visual, and other forms of telematic communication designed to enable the musicians to perform together without being in immediate proximity. Such technologies are often referred to as “telepresence”, a term coined by Martin Minsky (1980), suggesting that “the biggest challenge to developing telepresence is achieving a sense of ‘being there.’

The artistic project Interwoven Sound Spaces enables rich, multi-sensory interaction in the context of telematic music performance. By combining textile wearable technologies, interaction design, interactive machine learning, and spatialised sound, we extend the experience of playing and spectating contemporary ensemble music telematically, beyond screen-based applications.
