Future Emotions & Technology: How Synaesthesia, Technology and Experimental Music Dilate Emotional Geographies

Learn how data and human experiences can be decontextualized and recontextualized to expose new facets of understanding. Our sense of self, history, and geography all can be re­imagined and mutated through technology. Data can presented through sound in ways both alienating and intimate that cannot be replicated in charts and graphs. By hearing data or through live sonic feedback of real time events we are forced to think in different ways.

This talk includes an exploration of artificial synaesthesia; current and previous experiments to create new emotional reactions by intentionally switching and blending our senses through technology, as well as experiments and methods of data sonification and translation of live action through sensors and synthesizers
