Invitation to an evening with THE SOCIETY FOR NONTRIVIAL PURSUITS

Complex behaviors, whether in feedback systems, chaotic circuits, social systems and/or computer programs are fascinating objects of study. The Society for Nontrivial Pursuits (students, alumni and associates of the class Generative Art / Computational Art at UdK Berlin) explores the possibility spaces of such systems for experimental performance. They design, build and program their own audio/visual performance systems based on a variety of devices, sensors, analog electronics, and software synthesis, and use them in extremely diverse projects, often intended for performance contexts.

Chi-Hsia Lai: WanderOnStage Untitled #1.2
The WanderOnStage project pursues a performance approach that brings together aspects of percussion performance and media technology. It is a series of structured sound improvisations called Untitled, in which each configuration is modified depending on the performance space. The setup consists of percussive objects, mallets, microphones, a custom software effect for spatialisation and delay, and a wearable device to control that effect.

Non-conceptual sound performance for laptops, analog instruments, voice, sensor controllers and Supercollider.
