innovation:SOUND:technology (IST) series is centered on creative approaches and novel technological advances with aesthetic implications for music, instrument design, performance art, sound art, and digital art.
In the first virtual event of the IST series, artist Kathrin Hunze and composer Rob Hamilton introduce their creative works, artistic thinking, and research to engage in a lively conversation about Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Digital Art in relation to music and sound.
Kathrin Hunze studied communication design at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, is a graduate and a master student of the Art and Media programme at the Berlin University of the Arts. She is board member of the Media Art Association Berlin and member of the collectives KateHack and raumperspektive. Lecturer for the departments of art and media, fashion design at the Berlin University of the Arts and the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences. Her work have been presented at the Ars Electronica, Centre Pompidou and West Bund Museum. She lives and works in Berlin.
Rob Hamilton, composer and researcher, explores the converging spaces between sound, music and interaction. His creative practice includes extended-reality performance works built within fully rendered networked game environments, procedural music engines and mobile musical ecosystems. His research focuses on the cognitive implications of sonified musical gesture and motion and the role of perceived space in the creation and enjoyment of sound and music. Dr. Hamilton received his Ph.D. from Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) and currently serves as Associate Professor of Music and Media in the Department of Arts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY.
The event is hosted and programmed by Tobias Fandel and Itzá García.
