Forthcoming Performances in Mexico, Norway and UK

Three performances of my interactive music piece for enhanced body "Music for Flesh II" are scheduled at the 7o Simposio Internacional of the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, the Piksel Festival in Bergen and CultureLab in Newcastle. See the calendar for further details.

Xth Sense Biophysical Music Workshops: Winter Sessions

In this workshop participants build their own Xth Sense biosensor and learn how to generate interactive music from the muscle sounds of their bodies.
Next workshops have been confirmed for November at the UNAM in Mexico City and the CultureLab in Newcastle, UK and for December at Matadac Festival in Madrid. Booking will open soon, don't hesitate to contact me if you wish to participate to or host a course.

Speaking at the Seoul International Computer Music Festival

I'll be in Seoul from 20 to 24 October to present the Xth Sense and the new model of biophysical music to the Asian academic community. This engagement with the SICMF/KEAMS is endorsed by Creative Scotland.
A related paper "Xth sense: a biophysical framework for the application of muscle sounds to interactive music performance" will be published in the Computer Music Journal Emile Vol. 9 (December, 2011).
