Bioluminescence @ Experimentarium

Bioluminescence is an electroacoustic composition project by Augusto Meijer

The Bioluminescence piece is mainly composed for a sound&light installation exhibited at the Senses exhibition in the Experimentarium, Copenhagen. This is a great opportunity to present electroacoustic music for a young new audience! Augusto Meijer composed an electronic piece for the sound installation.

SENSES – new temporary exhibition

Are you a super smeller? A taste specialist with ‘power vision’? And why can dogs hear frequencies that you can’t? Experimentarium’s major new temporary exhibition SENSES, which is all about the amazing senses of humans and animals.

We can touch, smell, taste, see and hear the world around us. At the Senses exhibition, you get the chance to test it all and compare your senses with others – both humans and animals.

MORE INFO

The sound of Bioluminescence is captured in a wooden structure, designed by Jaap van den Elzen, who also designed an experience of Light for the Exhibition. The Bioluminescence piece is played back via 6 loudspeakers situated around the structure. People who enter this wooden structure are being surrounded by the mystical soundworld of Bioluminescence.

About ISMIR

The Eleventh International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference (ISMIR 2010) is held in Utrecht, Netherlands, from August 9th to 13th, 2010.

Since its inception in 2000, ISMIR has been the world’s leading forum for research on the modelling, creation, searching, processing and use of musical data. As the term Music Information Retrieval (MIR) indicates, this research is motivated by the desire to provide music lovers, music professionals and music industry with robust, effective and usable methods and tools to help them locate, retrieve and experience the music they wish to have access to. MIR is a truly interdisciplinary area, involving researchers from the disciplines of musicology, cognitive science, library and information science, computer science and many others.

After ISMIR’s scientific program on the 11th of August, the Utrecht School of Music and Technology (USMuT) presented a concert.
This 1 hour concert took place in the K&W gebouw (conservatory) in Utrecht.
