05.12.11 - Lemuriformes

lemuriformes is a collaborative improvisational performance project in which live coding, painting and electronic music blend together in one experience. Many issues are addressed in the process, such as the role of the graphical representation of code in live coding performances, live coding as a means of sound transformation [rather than synthesis], human and machine involvement levels in electronic music and live coding in collaborative performances. The main reason to start this unusual cooperation was to share a positive and playful experience in which the personal qualities of the collaborators have their role defined on the fly. From it we learned that it definitely creates an interesting combination of crosshatched and intersecting auditory and visual palettes, which we will continue to explore.
