Performing Arts Technology Seminar: Luke Dahl, University of Virginia

  1. Friday September 20 2:30pm
Earl V. Moore Building, Glenn E. Watkins Lecture Hall

Luke Dahl is assistant professor of Composition and Computer Technologies in the Music Department at University of Virginia where he teaches classes on music technology, audio signal processing, and music interaction design. His research is primarily situated in the interdisciplinary field of New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) which investigates and explores the intersection of technology and musical practice through the activities of design, musical performance, and empirical research. He is especially interested in systems for digitally-mediated real-time music collaboration, and in the role of movement and gesture in music. 

Dahl has recently released alpha versions of two software libraries: Modosc is a Max library for processing motion-capture data in real-time to enable movement-based interactions, and was created in collaboration with Dr. Federico Visi. Bf-Pd is a library written in PureData which facilitates real-time data-sharing and collaboration between musicians in spontaneously formed ensembles. Bf-Pd was developed in collaboration with Dr Florent Berthaut at Université de Lille.
