GALLERY I SUPRABAND (2017 WINTER)

2017 WINTER TECH SEMINAR  I   SUPRABAND

The 2017 Winter Quarter Tech Seminar explored into the topic of “Instrumentalization of Space” in relation to Mark Mack Suprastudio’s main thesis Performance + Architecture. Students have looked into various ways to create visual + musical instruments to compose, sequence and play spatial performances using contemporary digital technologies including sensory input devices, acoustical and digital instruments, MIDI and projection mapping.

Students were divide into four teams to form bands, a.k.a Supraband, where each student took a specific position and role to create an ensemble of musical sounds and visuals. The final project was a 5 minute live performance within each group where students played visuals and music using their own designed instruments. The instrument was designed as an input device interchanging serial data with MIDI and DMX information to create instantly responsive and intuitively playable controllers.
