Artist, composer, technologist and Eyebeam Honorary Resident, André Vida's interactive installation Score and Seek, projects animated musical notations that respond to the performers as they move and perform in the space. Over the course of the previous two weeks, the artist invited musicians to drop-in to test and refine his installation. Vida along with musicians Brett Sroka, Yuko Pepe, Jackson Moore and others for a closing performance and reception.

Score and Seek is supported by Cycling '74 and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
Forty-eight to Sixteen documents my daily commute from Brooklyn to midtown Manhattan with sensors for my heartrate, breathing, and the cadence of my pedaling, along with chest-mounted video. Cellist Topu Lyo interprets my experience via a composition I derived from the sources that is precisely timed with the video. I am interested in 'performing' data and my and Topu's divergent but equally physical relationship to the information. Additionally, the physiological basis of empathy has implications for recent trends in media culture toward first-person viewpoints and the integration of biometrics into documentary. (Named after the gear ratio of my bike.)

of course really like these excerpts; they were pulled from three hours of continuous performance. Enjoy! the last posting from this session. past recordings were collapsed as background, and active mixed reality backgrounds were transformed. the themes I wanted to pursue, earlier on, dealing with distortion, pain, ecstasy, etc. were more dominant, as were methods for dealing with exhaustion and (in my case) sickness.
