In October 09, KEDJA Oslo encounter was focusing on Dance and New Media.
TELE-PLATEAUS event this morning 6 Dec 09, at 5am (Oz time) in the context of Cynetart Festival in Dresden. Aim of Tele-Plateaus: to establish a permanent network allowing for direct audiovisual real-time interactions between similarly configured public sites and performance stages across Europe. Tele-Plateaus is composed, controlled and structured by movements of people from different cities. Within these networked stages and sites people from Dresden, Madrid, Norrköping, and Prague (among the first connected cities) can dance and play together. They can simultaneously create pictures, sounds, and light effects by means of their own movements without operating any additional interfaces. The shared virtual hyper-site is based on the generation of data that is available for processing to all computers within a common network. Movement parameters (speed, spatial position, etc.) are captured and digitalised by camera-based motion system and exchanged between computers at distant locations with a technically similar configuration. DANCETECH was producing the streaming of the event and diffusing interviews about the processes experienced by artists participating at the preparation of the event. (I found some interviews posted afterwards here)
