This year's theme is "Perform"
Performance haunts our electronic music and sonic arts.
The technologies which facilitate our sonic creations transmit, but also sometimes obscure, the gestures of our sound production. Speakers, microphones and interfaces could be said to displace as they transmit or transduce.
How much of the electronic music we hear is actually performed? How have our technologies changed our ideas of performance?
In the post-digital age, we often see an intermingling of technologies, terminologies and approaches, encompassing electroacoustic/computer/electronic music and sound-art. The terminology and descriptors are now becoming irrevocably entangled as a surge of new performers rise amidst the deluge of new hardware and software tools. As this cross–pollination occurs, the so-called cultural underground that originally supported this music appears to be very much ‘overground’ and alive, peddling its wares (equipment as well as music) with increasing prolificacy and achieving ever–increasing globalised acceptance. Should a new language be invented to define and discuss this music, or should the existing one be augmented? Or should we simply stop, listen, and enjoy the performance?
