SEAGER presents a gig by five young composers Chris Kirkham, Angus McMeekin, Freddie Smith-Wright, Max West and Billy James
Five young composers have gotten together to answer the question: What kinds of music emerges from the creation of music by integrating new technologies?

About

  The world of video games has always been a melting pot of artistic elements, from stunningnvisuals to compelling storylines. But it’s the music that often sets the tone, creating anbimmersive experience for the player. The synergy between music and video games offers endless possibilities that could reshape the cultural landscape and giving rise to new trends and ways to experience music as well as to give artists new ways to express themselves in a burgeoning soundscape

 In these modern times - where the computational meets the musical more and more – now an instrument can be a laptop, a digital sampler or even (unintentionally) an audio mixer: electronic controllers designed efficiently for a broad range of musical purposes.

Any musical instrument is a conduit through which the art is transformed from concept into reality – with which neither music nor the medium of games would exist.

Five musicians will perform using the controller as an instrument. They will explore the most of distinguishing the integral link the controller holds between virtual and musical fields.

 One distinctive aspect in this event is to showcase how interactivity facilitates a possibility to build social relationships or even co-create an entertainment. As we look to the future we can only expect this form of entertainment to keep growing.
