The Future Bionic looks into the future of the sonic human with audience-interactive performances featuring facial empathic scores, sonic masks, and techno-oracles.
Nebraska artist Kreimer presents ‘Born Wireless’ creating scores from the human face and their emotional landscape with custom-built instruments to respond to audience facial expressions empathically, triggering sounds derived from human speech and the human body.
Canadian folk artist Burgoyne creates ‘What do you think the mind is?’ a performance installation featuring suspended masks which audiences interact with to question and reflect the notions of our mind and body. The Cellar Ensemble (aka artist/programmer
Shane Myrbeck & musician Emily Shisko) explores our concepts of oracles using invented motion-light reactive instruments and musical processing conjuring the future through sound.
The Future Bionic urges audience members to consider our physical connections to our minds to unlock what the future holds.
