Call for Participation
Mobile Music Performance
The Digital Art Weeks 2006, organized by members of the Computer Science
Department of the ETH Zurich, is looking for up to twelve persons who are
interested in contemporary music and art who would be interested in
participating on a voluntary basis for the performance of a new
Mobil-Music work under the direction of Sound Artist, Art Clay using GPS
and mobile computer technologies.
Aesthetically, the work China Gates for tuned gongs and Wrist Conductor is
rooted in works for open public space and belongs to a series of works,
which celebrate the use of innovative mobile technologies to explore
public space and audience. The work is technically based on possibilities
of synchronizing a group of performers using the clock pulse emitted by
satellites. The GPS Wrist Conductor signals each player when to hit the
gong. An intense rippling effect results as the players gradually move
around the park and the music of the gongs shift back and fourth from
intense chords to exotic melodies.
The preparation for the event will take place in the form of a
mini-workshop on mobile music and sound in open space.
Persons interested in participating are asked to apply by sending a
message to the below stated email address. Please include a short
biography (50 words) telling us about yourself and why you would you like
to participate. Selected players will receive a festival pass for all
Digital Art Weeks 06 events.
