Following last week’s graduation work presentation, first-year students of the Academy showed their end-of-year projects. Unfortunately, these won’t be at the upcoming graduation exhibition, but it will be possible to see some of them at a show we’re planning for next March.
Today and tomorrow, second-year Academy students show their graduation work to teachers and fellow students. The general public will get a chance to experience the works during the IAMAS 2010 exhibition, which will be held from February 18 to 21.
Flutist and composer Jane Rigler visited us at IAMAS last friday for a lecture and performance of a few of her pieces for flute and live electronics. Jane talked about how traditional musical traditions of places like the Solomon Islands influenced her work as a composer and performer, and showed us some of the Max patches she uses for her performances. She also talked about Music Cre8tor, a system for allowing physically and cognitively challenged children to play music together.

28 April 2009, Soogsil University, Seoul, Korea
This was a four hour workshop in which I presented a historical overview of how computer vision has been used in the arts. I introduced both technical and aesthetic aspects of several important works and we followed with a short introduction to the OpenCV library. You can find also a simple tutorial I made for this workshop.
This workshop was part of a bigger event, Home Party, organised jointly by the DSP Couse of IAMAS and the BK21 Media Division of Soongsil University.
