Multiplexing now in permanent collection of MOMus | Thessaloniki

As of today 22.6.2020 my kinetic sound sculpture Multiplexing belongs to the permanent collection of MOMus Museum of Modern Art in Thessaloniki, Greece. I feel thrilled! I am taking this opportunity to share a few thoughts about the way a composer might feel when expressing himself in a quite different medium than pure sound (visuals, sculpture, etc). 

Generally, I believe that apart from the technical differences between various forms of art, there is common ground in the process of expressing oneself in artistic means. Same agonies, efforts, failures etc. Nevertheless, there were two very special aspects I experienced with this work and I would like to share. The first is the way I interacted with the audience-spectators and the second is the way I had to treat the work after its first exhibition was over.

Interactive Music Systems | Exhibition 2019 AUTh

Please find here a short video with excerpts from the works of my students created during our easter semester course “Interactive Music Systems” at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. All projects are based on Arduino programming, interfacing with various hardware sensors (photodiodes, distance sensors, switches, potentiometer etc) and communicating with various software platforms like Live Ableton, PureData, etc.
