Thor Magnusson

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

Musical collaboration over high-speed networks is the topic of this talk. Thor Magnusson will present some problems regarding timing in networked music and talk about various experiments and concerts he has been involved with exploring these technologies. As example of a networked concert between Helsinki, Finland and Fairbanks, Alaska. Over the years, as part of ixi software, Magnusson has delivered workshops in various European institutions and universities where the ixi software's team have taught the technology behind networked instruments and performance tools in multi-media. This presentation will also introduce the strong culture of open source software used to create unique musical instruments for the computer and show some examples of the work that ixi software has been developing.
