Arthur Carabott: Interactive Music System at the Olympic Park

Thursday 2nd of May 2013
Troyganic, 132 Kingsland Road
7pm

Summary
A detailed look at the musically interactive Coca-Cola Beatbox Pavilion at the London 2012 Olympic Park, with live demo.
I will give a practical look at the interactive and generative music techniques I developed for the project, talking about working with projected capacitance sensors, showing the custom hardware that was developed by iArt interactive for the building and giving an overview of the computer system that ran the building.
I will also talk about the logistics of the project; working with a big corporate, architects, designers, engineers and marketing departments to get a huge interactive music installation built on the Olympic Park in under 6 months.

Arthur is an interactive artist, sound designer and software developer, who graduated from the now defunct (we’ve heard) Music Informatics course at Sussex.
