The lecture will build on the theme of post-digitality, but with a different angle – made doubly relevant with more dedicated devices, smaller and more pervasive computation, and wearables.
Peter Kirn is a musician, media artist, and technology journalist. He is the editor of two daily sites that chronicle creative process and technology, Create Digital Music and Create Digital Motion. He has also helped develop open source technologies and uses them in his performance practice, including co-creating the MeeBlip hardware synthesizer (itself a digital/analog hybrid) and contributing to the software library libpd (based on Pure Data). In musical and audiovisual performances, he produces experimental ambient and experimental dance music, as presented at venues such as B-Seite Festival (Mannheim, DE), Frequency Festival (Lincoln, UK), and LEAP Gallery (Berlin, DE).
Kirn is completing a PhD in music composition at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York. He has taught at Parsons The New School for Design, Brooklyn College, and others, and now lectures and teaches workshops internationally.
