On Friday, April 18 at 3pm on the second floor of the east wing of the UWM Golda Meir Library in room E272, there will be a Digital Arts and Culture (DAC) program talk.
The guest speaker, Dr. Kia Ng, is the Director of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Scientific Research in Music (ICSRiM) at the University of Leeds, UK.
Recognized for his work in interactive multimedia, computer visualization and digital music, Ng's talk "Human/Technology: Interface for Performing Arts," presents his research on gesture visualization and sonification.
Starting with the relationship between music and motion, Ng will discuss selected ICSRiM projects including musical instrument interfaces and an interactive rock instrument from the Ruskin Rock project.
This talk will explore how usercentred design can enhance the interactive and expressive potentials present in performance and learning spaces.
