Live electronic music performance: Embodied and enactive approaches

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Mini Savior Opt. (2017) is a twenty-five minute live electronic performance which demonstrates an enactive and embodied approach to interactive and improvisational music systems. The piece was formed out of a playful exploration of my most recent hybrid analogue/digital performance system. An excessive number of components mutually affect each other through an ecological network of sound analysis and digital signal processing (DSP). Engaging with different parts of the instrument through tangible and haptic controllers, I bring a sense of immediacy into my hands: the slightest movement may trigger a drastic change in sound, which in turn may activate other processes within the network. Through the physical struggle, the performer, vulnerable to the fragile instabilities that have been potentialised, attempts to navigate the performance space.
