NIME 2015

IMG_0002I recently returned from NIME 2015 in Baton Rouge, Lousiana, where I was demonstrating the Max system used for the composition and performance of Kafka-Esque.  I met some amazing people, heard some fantastic performances and listened to inspiring talks.

Highlights included an inspiring keynote from R. Luke Dubois, a wonderfully visual performance by Myriam Bleau, a beautiful piece by Tim Shaw using the audience’s mobiles, building musical robots out of cardboard with Jiffer Harriman , some very useful Max machine learning techniques and Steve Benford talking about the Carolan Guitar. It was great to meet and hang out with Simon Waloschek, Gregory Taylor, Duncan Menzies and the guys from the CREATE Ensemble.
