XNPM22: Xenakis Networked Performance Marathon 2022
As part of the centenary celebrations for the birth of Iannis Xenakis, the Performative Environments Arts Research Lab at the Department of Audiovisual Arts of the Ionian University, in collaboration with Athens Conservatory and the Meta-Xenakis consortium are planning a “Xenakis Networked Performance Marathon” from Friday, December 16 19:00 (local time EEST), to Saturday, December 17, 2022, 21:00 (local time, EEST). During this marathon, works will be performed at the same time at Athens Conservatory (Athens), as well as other venues worldwide, using the internet to transmit control data, audio and video and to coordinate performances between different locations. Our aim is to enable artists to perform their works from remote locations and to recreate these works in real time in Athens and other venues by running the software that creates these performances locally, based on the data received from the performers over the internet.
Performance data from live coders, scores, instrumental performers, dancers, installations and other media formats, will be shared live between individual coders, performers and venues anywhere in the world during the performances, enabling different realizations at each venue. The main data format will be Open Sound Control (OSC), and data will be broadcast to all performing venues via OscGroups (http://www.rossbencina.com/code/oscgroups). Additionally we will provide audio and video streaming. At the Athens Conservatory we will provide support for recreating performances on various software platforms such as SuperCollider, TidalCycles, FoxDot, SEMA and others.
