Think Tank #12 – All About Mapping

January 15th, 2013 7:30 pm 
STEIM Concert Space, Utrechtsedwarsstraat 134, Amsterdam STEIM Concert Space, Utrechtsedwarsstraat 134, Amsterdam

The Soundlings collective, in partnership with STEIM, organizes regular meetings to informally discuss current topics of interest for the broader field of musicians, producers, and sound artists. Attendance is limited and by reservation.

This edition of Think Tank will revolve around questions of mapping in the digital arts (and beyond). Mapping is the process by which we translate one type of information to another; for example, the question of how to best translate a button press into a complex musical response is largely a question of mapping. Mapping is an essential design choice in nearly all digital artworks from video games, to new musical instruments, to data visualizations, and immersive interactive media environments. The discussion will be led by Marije Baalman and Georgios Papadakis, two artists who have dealt extensively with this topic in research and practice.

The discussion will take place at the STEIM Concert Space on the 15th of January at 19:30. Please note that the STEIM Concert Space entrance is on Utrechtsedwarsstraat 134 (the back entrance to STEIM). The discussion is organized and moderated by ‘Soundlings’ and as usual there will be a video stream.

We can only create a meaningful discussion with a limited amount of participants, so attendance will be limited to reservation by email.

If you feel like you have something important to add to the discussion please send a mail with your motivation to thinktank [AT] soundlings [DOT] com
