Owego System Trade Routes

Ryan Ross Smith, Shawn Lawson

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


This performance will highlight the AppiOSC, a live interface that enables wireless, bi-directional control between a
live coding graphics interface The Force and a modular synthesizer. Our intention with the AppiOSC in the context of
Owego System Trade Routes is to extend beyond the typical, unidirectional manifestation of interactivity in audio-visual
performance, in which the audio signal drives, or influences the graphics, while the graphics signal has little to no direct
impact on the audio. With bidirectional control, both the visual and audio artist can explicitly impact the other’s outcome,
enabling performative possibilities beyond a unidirectional system.
