Interactive Music at the Oslo Konserthus
EPEC researchers Charles Martin and Kai Olav Ellefsen demonstrated some of our interactive music systems in December 2016.

We recently had the chance to present some experimental musical instruments developed as part of the EPEC project at Oslo Konserthus as part of their "Score" video game music concert.
We brought along a set of rapidly-prototyped handmade synthesisers, Charles' iPad musical instrument PhaseRings and some new experimental music apps for Android and iOS. The demonstration showed off some of the proficiencies of our group in 3D printing, mobile and multimedia development, and interactive music performance.
Charles and Kai Olav were joined by percussionist Christina Hopgood and musicology student Hedda Andersen who participated in demonstrations and improvised performances over two days.
Lots of great interest and conversation from concertgoers young and old as well as a few quizzical looks about our "weird sounds"!
