Wednesday Presenters/本周演讲者介绍

  • Ben Houge - no stranger to Shanghai, Ben has has worked on large game titles creating sounds for many well known games, he will be giving a talk on how he's been using max/MSP to create his musical pieces.

I'll present a quick look a number of recent projects that exist somewhere between video games, digital art, and music composition, likely including the following:

Cycles, Tides, and Seasons A two screen, 8 x 12 foot real-time video piece running all summer at Boston's Harbor Island Pavilion, visualizing data from the Islands on three different time scales http://bostoncyberarts.org/category/specialproject/

DoppelLab The focus of my artist residency at MIT last winter, working with the Responsive Environments team at the Media Lab to sonify data from ubiquitous sensor networks in the Unity game engine http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2012/visiting-artist-ben-houge-panel.html

Food Opera: Four Asparagus Compositions A collaboration with chef Jason Bond, in which I created a real-time algorithmic accompaniment to a four course, asparagus-based tasting menu using video game scoring techniques http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2012/05/29/153950254/the-sounds-of-asparagus-as-explored-through-opera

Kaleidoscope Music A real-time, six channel sound installation that algorithmically filters environmental sound, first presented at Beijing's Today Art Museum in 2009, and expanded for a show at Boston's Axiom Center last fall. http://benhouge.com/kaleidoscope.html
