Poetry and interactive sound: Project Conjuntos UC3M

rescheduled from 20 March 2020

Carlos III University celebrates the World Poetry Day with a meeting of projects that put together sound, poetry and technologies.
The interdisciplinary platform “Conjuntos” (supported by Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation) tries to establish dialogues between arts and sciences. One of the main laboratories of the platform is called Dispares, where two people from different disciplines (artist and scientist students) work together. In this event we will share three of the pieces made in this laboratory, which combine poetry and interaction through sound and technology:
– Interactive sound carpet: an interactive sound mat that returns an auditory construction of sounds and texts according to the paths we make walking along the carpet and to the places where we remain.
– Selfie 31: a live performance, where the sound of the poetry is transformed in light through the Arduino device.
– Whisperers 3.1: an augmented reality app where photography and interactive sound invite the audience to relate poetry with intimacy.
