T*ActiLE

Technology and Action-led Experience in contemporary performing arts

To what extend does cutting-edge technology contribute nowadays to boosting and expanding musical creativity and expression?

With my research T*ActiLE: Technology and Action-led Experience in contemporary music performance, I want to explore ways to apply state-of-the-art technology as a performative-based tool  to develop audio-visual techniques in playing an acoustic instrument, like the piano, and as a biofeedback-based tool to enhance methods for the gestural self-evaluation in piano performance practice.  

This technological and embodied musical experience will achieve pioneering performative paradigms, interdisciplinary, interactive and immersive artistic formats that will open new horizons in the contemporary performing arts.
