First off, how are you doing and what have you been up to in the past months?
I'm okay despite everything, really. I had some time off music at the start of quarantine, but over the past few months I've started to focus on some new projects. I have been doing a bunch of workshops these past few weeks, one with a group of 10-11-year-olds at No Bounds Festival in Sheffield, another one commissioned by Les Siestes Electroniques with a group at a retirement home in Paris. Last weekend I did a remote performance with Mark Fell and dancer Justin Kennedy at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin as part of a CTM Festival event. All these use some software I've been developing with Mark that enables remote participation in different ways. We have been building various stand alone apps that contain musical devices that people can play together in real time over a network. We are currently working on a number of different outcomes which we are calling Inter-symmetric works. These include workshops, live performances, installations and critical discussions. Exploring the musical possibilities of remote participation, with a focus on exploratory forms of networked interaction between audiences and collaborators.
