This is an ongoing collaborative and experimental interdisciplinary project with an aim to involve artistic research processes for the presentation of computer data, moreover, to explore user experiences of interactive sound art situated in a public space.
The project is linked to the overall field of New Media Art. Research is conducted within the field of New Interfaces for Musical Expressions (NIME), intersecting the area of interactive sound art.
The project includes the creation of a place-specific interactive sound art installation to be placed outdoors at Umeå university. The interactive sound art installation will be developed to create a constantly ongoing and changeable music performance, based on the activity and data flow from the Super Computer (installed at the HPC2N: High Performance Computing Center North) in combination with peoples actions when interacting with the installation. The research is conducted through several short iterations. A media ecology theoretical perspective is guiding the research processes.
