Alt-w | The Third Mind

The Third Mind | Matthew Collings

6th & 7th March 2013, 8pm. £5
CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3JD

Created and programmed by composer Matthew Collings and visual artist Erik Parr, 'The Third Mind' is an interactive and generative audio-visual app and performance that will explore the idea of 'algorithmic cinema'.

Different temporal relationships between user and app will unfold over the course of the day, with further added sensitivity amplifying the interaction due to changes, for example, in their geographical location.

In a performance scenario the sound and visuals connect to one another via a constant data exchange, shifting content dynamically in response, whilst the audience adds more data and texture from live foley stations.

The University of Edinburgh's Inspace was home to a joint research partnership between the School of Informatics and New Media Scotland.

Inspace was a laboratory that explored the cultural significance of informatics and new media practice.

With each passing season, different programme catalysts were released enabling research, production, education and outreach activity.

Hands on dialogue and exchange unfolded through experiments, exhibitions, talks and performances.
