On Space curveS aS a SubStrate fOr audiOviSual cOmpOSitiOn Lance Putnam UK www.mat.ucsb.edu/~l.putnam- / www.mutatorvr.com

In this talk, I present the use of space curves as a fundamental construct for audiovisual composition. Curves provide an attractive starting point for audiovisual synthesis as they provide a natural translation between sound and graphics. Systems for producing curves for art, design, and scientific inquiry date back to at least the 18th century and we see similar constructs persisting across mechanical, electronic, and digital technologies. Digital technologies break with the past by allowing precise, interactive control of these curves that allows a much tighter perceptualcomputational feedback loop. Contemporary uses of space curves will be presented through my own audiovisual compositions and collaborative projects including the recent “Mutator VR” virtual reality experience that dips the user into a multitude of procedurally-generated sci-fi alien worlds.

Colombian composer/intermedia artist, Alba Triana, will discuss some of her recent musical installations, concerned with the poetic exploration of fundamental physical properties of resonating objects emitting sound and/or light. These musical pieces cross disciplinary boundaries of art, science and technology; unfolding in time and space, in order to be heard, walked around and seen. Triana will describe how she uses her creative process to penetrate intangible aspects of nature, in search of a deeper understanding of how nature’s traits and behaviors are linked to the very existence and development of music and poetic expression.
