Performance Lab 1: Enrico Bertelli plays Drumatica

23 October 2013

Time: 4:00 - 5:00pm
Venue: MAT Performance Lab Engineering Building, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London, E1 4NS

Combined performance and talk of Enrico Bertelli as start of the new event series "Performance Lab".

As a joint event of C4DM’s ISaM and QM’s MAT program, “Performance Lab” brings in practitioners and performers using various technologies in their music and arts practice. Our guests will performance for us before giving practice-based insights in their work and creative use of technology.

At Performance Lab 1 Enrico Bertelli, a professional percussionist with academic background, will perform with his augmented percussion setup Drumactica. It is based on an augmented snare drum using conductive ink, the leap motion camera, and other peculiar things like a ‘water piano’ in an ice cube tray - and there is some real drumming on top of things. After the performance Enrico will give a hands-on talk on his setup & the used technology.

Performance Labs are considered as an open, inspirational and rather casual event series for interested members of staff, students and non-QMs’/EECS - Everybody is warmly welcome.
