Next meeting Tuesday August 23rd 7 pm EMMEDIA

We will be sharing our meeting with the awesome people at Protospace again!

Richard Reeves

Richard uses electric light to make sounds and reuses classic film technology and equipment to create new ways of presenting sound, especially for performance works. He will be talking about handmade optical sound creation as well as the 16mm magnetic film violin. He will be bringing in samples of sounds for demo as well as the violin!

He will be doing a demo of human projection screens to complete a mini performance. He said “This way others can pick up on the concepts and hopefully use and expand the ideas for themselves.”

Lindsay MacDonald

Lindsay will be talking about her experience at the Eyeo festival. This conference brings together the most creative coders, designers and artists working today. The conference included the likes of Nicholas Felton of the Felton report. Robert Hodgin, the guy with the hacked Kinect, Ben Fry and Casey Reas from processing.org and Gloan Levin and way too many others for me to list.

Lindsay just finished her Masters in Computational Media Design at the U of C and is starting her PhD. She is an artist and new media researcher/practitioner born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. She has a BFA in painting and digital media from the University of Calgary, another BFA in Interdisciplinary Studio Practice from NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and is currently working on her MFA in Computational Media Design at the University of Calgary. Prior to beginning her masters studies, Lindsay served as the Production Coordinator for The Banff New Media Institute at The Banff Centre. Her work focuses on engaging viewers through interaction and participation.

Many thanks to EMMEDIA for donating our space this month.
