Officine Sintetiche 2015: Isadora (software) and the Interactive Media Art

Officine Sintetiche 2015 proposes a public conference and a workshop with Mark Coniglio, the creator of Isadora, the award winning, interactive media presentation tool. Whether you are an artist, designer, performer, or VJ, you can quickly and
easily harness the limitless potential of digital media and real-time interactivity with Isadora.

Mark Coniglio, composer and media-artist developed initially Isadora to realize the performances of Troika
Ranch, the pioneering media intensive dance company he co-founded. Isadora reflects over 20 years of practical
experience with real-time live performance and media interactivity. But the use of Isadora crosses different
sectors and disciplines.

Monday 30/11/2015, 2:00pm-4:00pm
Aula Magna - Campus “Luigi Einaudi”

Mark Coniglio tells his artistic path and the the birth of Isadora through an audio-visual showcase. He will show
practically the potential of Isadora.

The workshop focuses on Isadora Software and on the creation of media intensive live performances. The
workshop introduces the participants to the basic use of Isadora software as an interactive performance and
design tool. Participants will deal with the “liveness” dimension, including how movements and voice interact
in real time with audio-visual contents, through digital media. No previous programming experience is required.
