STARTS Residency Public Report Constella(c)tions

(1) , (1) , (1)


The goal of the Constella(c)tions project was to develop new paradigms for screenless and collective musical interaction, repurposing web and mobile technologies. Constella(c)tions unfolds as a set of collective musical games and interactive pieces involving various gestures, body movements and action of performers and/or public within open musical environments (open work). The project is inscribed in a practice-based methodology with the aim of exploring and developing further technological tools dedicated to play sounds using the motion sensors embedded in smartphones. In this context, the residency allowed the composer to create new musical pieces, involving various performers, from professional music ensemble to pedagogical action in schools, as well as including the general public in performances. Feedback and continued discussions and experimentations allowed us to constantly and reflectively revise both the interaction design and technology. The gained experience ultimately allowed us to design a new version of our technological ecosystem. The results are thus intrinsically of a hybrid nature, beyond strict scientific and artistic boundaries, and allowed us to reconsider our technical setup from a novel epistemic point of view. Several new projects have already been engaged, with dancers, musicians, as well as pedagogical actions. The project allowed us to create novel ways to engage the public, aiming at fostering social interaction and inclusion.
