T*ActiLE Project

Technology and Action-led Experience in contemporary music performance

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

The project T*ActiLE: Technology and Action-led Experience in contemporary music performance explores ways to apply state-of-the-art technology as a performative-based tool  to develop composition 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 artistic formats and monitoring methods that will open new horizons in the contemporary music performance research.
