Composer and performer Se-Lien Chuang and Andreas Weixler also known as Atelier Avant Austria are invited to a collaborative visit to the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) at The Ohio State University.

New experiences will be evoked in the encounter of the Austrian/Taiwanese artists duo with the local Sonic Arts Ensemble and the composer Marc Ainger and flutist Ann Stimson. The artworks range from algorithmic concepts, improvisation in mutual influence of  acoustic instrumental sounds and realtime audiovisual processing as well as multichannel electroacoustic music and art video.

The venue Motion Lab is a rapidly reconfigurable interdisciplinary space for motion research and advanced technology performance investigation and therefore the perfect place for experiments in the field of contemporary composition, instrumental playing techniques and realtime computing of score, sound and pictures.
