SIIDS – Sound, Image and Interaction Doctoral Symposium (4/10/2018) was hosted by M-ITI – Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (Funchal, Portugal), and had two tracks: poster (with oral presentation) and performance. There was also a keynote presentation (and performance) by Prof. Atau Tanaka (Goldsmiths, U. London). Participation was open to all international PhD students conducting research on computer-based systems for interactive sound, in particular combined with image. We had 9 participants for the poster track, and 2 for the performance track. The Symposium was preceded by a talk (3/10/2018) by Fabio Morreale (Queen Mary U. London).
On 20/05/2015, I had my first performance with the AVZones project, at the Mono Shop space opening, in Berlin. I performed solo, and also played with Taavi “Miisu” Varm (approximately 20 minutes each performance). The AVZones project is still work in process, so this performance was useful to try out the tool in a live context, and obtain feedback from the audience.
On 6/12/2013, Baltic Diving Co. (me and Joel Tammik) performed at Stalker festival, at KultuuriKatel, Tallinn. The festival was inspired by Tarkovski’s movie Stalker, who was partially shot at the building which is now Kultuurikatel (a reconverted power plant). The headliner for the festival was Laurel Halo, and artists active in the local electronic music scene also performed.
