I Have the Right to De[Story] of Myself: The composeris interested in a psychologically interactive
process of human process such as outer action, inner action, interaction and emotion in response to
interactive effects of musical contents and non-musical contents in spatialization. This performance will
be based on interactive performance systems conceptual interacting strategies in forming electroacoustic
sound identities and multimedia performance assessment system. These complex interactive effects of
music and non-musical materials needs underlying intrinsic motivational process in order to form the
psychological representation of musical/non musical contents in noise context in an interactive real-time
system for the control of sound and visual localization, which involved in the temporal organization of
complex auditory sequences and multimedia process. This piece is an exploration of an audio
+multimedia interactive system, which involves live electronics, pan/tilt lightings, white laser, pre-
recorded video, live video, live visuals, gestures, and sound-le playback system with spatlicalization.
This audio +multimedia system is designed that one main interface of one computer controls sound with
other multimedia devices in an interactive way. The playback system is built from pro tools. They run on
MAX/MSP with spatlization. Pre- recorded video images are built, and run on Jitter that interlocks data
points from audio process. These pre recorded sound and video combine or independently interlock
with live video/visuals, computer generated sound and a real time audio process. The pan-tilts lightings
and a white laser connects to MAS/MSP through dmxusbpro and arduino, accompanied by actions
stage behind the screen on the stage. 1/5

Hunjoo Jung isa sound & multimedia designer, improviser, researcher and composer ofacoustic,
electronic and electroacoustic concert music as well as intermedia installation art. In recent years, besides
focusing on acoustic music, Jung has also been exploring multi-complex structural ways in which
interactive visual, live video and video mapping, lighting & laser, sensor, actions and/or sculptural
forms of objects can be used in a wide range of combination with acoustic, electroacoustic and electronic
music in spatializatioin. He is pursuing postgraduate degreefromthe University of Music and
Performing Arts,Graz . Heholds a Masters degreefrom University of California, San Diego and further
degreesfrom New England Conservatory (BM). Now, he is staying in Vienna as an artistic researcher.

A brooding duet for the self, Cimmerian Isolation nds meaning in the interplay between the sound of
theute and the performers own primal uttering. These two often separate entities interact with and are
greatly accentuated by the addition of live electronics and extensive real-time processing. Cimmerian
in this case references its denition as an adjectivemeaning very dark or gloomy and attempts to
elicit imagery of a wealthy recluse living in cimmerian isolation in a decaying Victorian mansion,left
only to themselves and descending into eventual madness.

Gemmeleg:The Feral Cello is a performance system inspired by a post-phenomenological

understanding of musical intentionality. The system is constructed from an actuated cello that is
controlled solely through machine listening. A pickup under the bridge sends the cello sound to a laptop
running Max for processing and a machine learning algorithm analyses the cellos sounds to make
decisions on the type of signal processing to apply. This processed audio is then played back through the
cello through actuators placed upon its body. The cello and the processed sound through the instrument
should be conceived as one augmented feral instrument.

Gemmeleg is a semi-structured improvisation developed particularly for the Feral Cello that explores
ve compositional ideas. The listening and feedback of the cello is used to switch between sections but
also as a springboard for improvisational creativity within the piece. The ambiguity of the cellos
response is used to highlight the agency of the cello within the performance as the improviser struggles
to cope with the shifting responses of the system.

Composition: Laura Reid

System Design: Tom Davis
