" ...The improviser must effect real-time sensory and perceptual coding,
optimal attention allocation, event interpretation, decision making,
prediction (of the actions of the others), memory storage and recall,
error correction, and movement control, and further must integrate these
processes into an optimally seamless set of musical statements...."
(Pressing 1988)
You are invited to join the interdisciplinary workshop organised by Ofer
Smilansky (Art Science Interfaculty , The Hague, The Netherlands)
together with the organisation for art and media technology OKNO
(Brussels, Belgium) for artists working in the field of live
improvisation with computers. This event will take place at OKNO
(Koolmijnenkaai Quai des Charbonnages 34, Brussels 1080) from Friday 27
November at 14:00 to Sunday 29 November at 18:00.

The workshop will consist of a combination of discussions and live
sessions: both elements will allow participants to share ideas, discuss
challenges, and discover new practices. This event will bring together
experts and non experts, professionals and amateurs, all of them sharing
the same interest and having experience in computerized improvisation.
We want to bring musicians together to play, only prerequisite is that
you use a computer in some way when you perform.
Sunday night there will be a closing session, open to the public.

If you are interested in participating in the workshop or at least part
of it, let us know as soon as possible!
Travel expenses, accommodation and meals can be covered within the
limits of the available budget.
We have a limited number of participants, to be part of the workshop,
send a short bio and motivation to ofersmi at gmail.com.

Looking forward to your reaction!

Ofer Smilansky and the OKNO-team.
