The 2011 New Interfaces for Musical Expression selected BiLE to perform this year in Oslo.
The NIME conference draws a varied group of participants, including researchers (musicology, computer science, interaction design, etc.), artists (musicians, composers, dancers, etc.) and developers (self-employed and industrial). The common denominator is the mutual interest in groundbreaking technology and music, and contributions to the conference cover everything from research on human cognition through experimental technological devices to multimedia performances.
We will be playing a new piece XYZ by BiLE member Shelly Knotts. The piece is a structured improvisation using motion capture devices such as iphones, wiimote and kinect, where each player can use their device to take over control of another players sound.
So if you happen to be in Oslo, we’ll be performing on Tuesday 31st May @ 9.00pm at Chateau Neuf (Street address: Slemdalsveien 15). Otherwise, we’ll be updating the Blog when we get back!
