    • NOVARS matinee (2/2): Prof. Rajmil Fischman - A Manual Actions Expressive System (part 2 of 2)

      Presentation / workshop by Rajmil Fischman on his MAES system and performance of Ruraq Maki (PART 2 of 2) Ruraq Maki, which means ‘handmade’ in the Quechua language spoken in the central Andes of South America, is a composition performed through natural hand actions (e.g. hitting virtual objects, shaking them, etc.). This is enabled by means of a self-contained ‘Manual Actions Expressive System’ (MAES) consisting of a digital glove controlled by specialised software for the creation of musical gestures. While these gestures result from tracking and analysing hand motion and finger bend, the technology allows performers to concentrate on natural actions from our daily use of the hands (e.g. the physical movement associated with hitting, shaking, dragging, etc.). Therefore, the performer generates and ‘manipulates’ sounds, shaping the latter, engaging with virtual sound sources and interacting with MAES in a manner similar to that of videogame play, in which the technology is driven by the user according to rules that vary depending on the current state of the ‘game’; i.e. the musical work. Future plans for MAES include the realisation of a ‘videogame score’ which will enable individuals who do not have formal musical training to perform works such as Ruraq Maki, engaging actively in music making. At the same time, it will still allow performers to achieve virtuosity by providing gestures that can be adapted to individual requirements.

                    As a form of urban experiment the Paris PARC is the imprint of the pressures of its urban context. Wedged into a super dense context – in terms of space, public flows and architectural history – the PARC is conceived as a chain of reactions to the various external and internal forces acting upon it. Inflated to allow daylight and air to enter into the heart of the facility, compressed to ensure daylight and views for the neighboring classrooms and dormitories, lifted and decompressed to allow the public to enter from both plaza and park and finally tilted to reflect the spectacular view of the Paris skyline and the Notre Dame to the Parisians.
