InHands: Improvisation for Mobile Phones @ NIME 2012
21 May 2012
Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.
InHands, an audiovisual real-time improvisation for mobile phones, explores alternative options for musical interactions with two mobile instruments in live performances. In this improvisation piece, audio synthesis modules in each instrument are interconnected and act together with the performer's control gestures. Each mobile instrument's sound output becomes a sound input for the other one; to be processed further with an act of responding immediately and spontaneously. This interaction between the instruments results in a continuous activity for the performer, exploring new formations of sounds and listening consciously, which at the end builds an engaging and creative musical activity. Performed by Adam Parkinson at NIME 2012.
