Event Information

Performance haunts our electronic music and sonic arts.

This year’s ISSTA conference and festival will feature papers, music and sound art on the theme of performance.

The technologies which facilitate our sonic creations transmit, but also sometimes obscure, the gestures of our sound production. Speakers, microphones and interfaces could be said to displace as they transmit or transduce. How much of the electronic music we hear is actually performed? How have our technologies changed our ideas of performance?
