Interactive Network Performance: a dream worth dreaming?

  • AJAY KAPUR (a1), GE WANG (a2), PHILIP DAVIDSON (a2) and PERRY R. COOK (a3)

This paper questions and examines the validity and future of interactive network performance. The history of research in the area is described as well as experiments with our own system. Our custom-built networked framework, known as GIGAPOPR, transfers high-quality audio, video and MIDI data over a network connection to enable live musical performances to occur in two or more distinct locations. One of our first sensor-augmented Indian instruments, The Electronic Dholak (EDholak) is a multi-player networked percussion controller that is modelled after the traditional Indian Dholak. The EDholaks trigger sound, including samples and physical models, and visualisation, using our custom-built networked visualisation software, known as veldt.
