Content and results
This 3 days workshop gathered a particularly large spectrum of competencies, levels of expertise, and centres of interest. Some participants originated from graphics arts or computer graphics sciences, whereas the core competency of others was in music and composition, or music technology. Many were students (Licence or Master degrees), but others were experienced artists or teachers in various disciplines.
This diversity allowed a deep cross-empowerment for the participants. Each participant, though being firstly interested in using and questioning the technologies dedicated to his/her domain of interest, could open his mind wide by experimenting other technologies, and mix with people from other disciplines. Finally, given the number of participants, and the diversity of the tools proposed, 4 sessions were run in parallel - though with meeting points.
Finally, this workshop was part of the “#Art Science Technology” event that concluded the 2 years of the Créativité Instrumentale and AMBIANT Creativity projects. Participants hence benefited from a large spectrum of activities in parallel with the workshop itself: conference and seminar, concerts, exhibition. In particular, specific sessions were organized for the workshops’ participants on the multisensory art installation “Geste réel sur matière simulée”.
