The International Exhibition of Black music is renown for being one of the best interactive exhibitions to have come out of France on music. It will be on at Museum Africa as part of the Arts Alive and French South African Season from the 31st of August to the end of the year.
What is most exciting for us, is that along with the conference, the developers of the interactive installation are holding a series of training sessions that look at electronic music and interactive media development.
The Workshops are titled: “Filming Music” and “Using Digital Arts in Culture” are bring held from the 5th to the 10th of September, and they come highly recommended. So if you have any interest, sign up asap!
Jono Crossely and I from the Wits School of Arts will be opening the “Using Digital Arts in Culture” sessions. The focus for these sessions will be on Interaction Design for sensors, control surfaces and audio guide development for smart phones. The other focus will be Real time video affects in Max MSP, but also with body tracking and Real time audio processing.
