BiLE @NIME 2011 / 30th May-1st June / Oslo.

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!


About bileweb

BiLE (Birmingham Laptop Ensemble) are a collaborative group of composers (instrumental and electroacoustic), performers. Six artists were brought together through their shared interest in live performance and desire to perform and improvise together in an interactive ensemble. BiLE has an open attitude towards experimentation with sound, allowing members of the group to bring their own tools and musical experience to the ensemble, rather than focussing on creating a single environment for live coding and sound generation. This means that composers with varied backgrounds can contribute musically to the performance. BiLE’s core team of performers are: Julien Guillamat, Les Hutchins, Shelly Knotts, Norah Lorway, Jorge Garcia Moncada, Chris Tarren. BiLE regularly perform with glitch artist Antonio Roberts.
