GLOBALE: Tangible Sound

24 - 27 September 2015

Over the five-day festival entitled »Tangible Sound« the results of the EU project »European Art Science and Technology Network« (EASTN) will be presented. The comprehensive program includes a symposium, concerts, presentations and installations. Focus is placed on such subjects as augmented reality, cartoons or multi-sensory art. 

As a high point a sound installation will be presented by the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics (IMA) in collaboration with the International Ensemble Modern Academy (IEMA). Musicians and dancers position themselves in the ZKM atria and can be freely selected by the public. Each visitor possesses a Smartphone or a Tablet, with the help of which they are able to perceive specific sounds via headphones which merge with those sounds in the space. To this end, visual, physical models can be triggered on specifically predetermined sites so that a new space-sound experience emerges with various virtual levels.
