“FIRE Engine” is an improvisational laptop performance for interactive iPads and Laptop by FIRE (all-Female Interface Research Ensemble). FIRE performs and produces multi-genre, improvisational works on laptops, informed by live-coding, gestural interfaces, and various DAWs.FIRE is a laptop ensemble designed specifically as a research group for exploratory cognitive, stylistic, and interface research, through performance.
FIRE is Norah Lorway, Edie Pearce and Brenna Cantwel, all postgraduate students at the University of Birmingham, studying electroacoustic/computer music, all active SuperCollider programmers, as well as members of BEAST (Birmingham Electroacoustic Sound Theatre).
Bio-box is an interface that uses the principle of biofeedback to establish an audio communication between different types of living systems (mosses and algae). The bio-box uses microvoltage from gestural responses by interacting with these bodies through physical stimuli such as light, vibration and touch.
This performance of improvised programming generates danceable percussive music emphasizing generative rhythms and their variations. The stream of rapidly changing algorithmic bass music leads to a stimulated and dancing audience.
In this performance Roberts live codes audio and visuals in the creative coding environment Gibber. The performance capitalizes on new affordances in Gibber enabling cross-modal, time-continuous mappings with a simple notation that lends itself to rapid experimentation and iteration.
