The FWF-funded art-based research project “Breaking The Wall“ explores how to use technology to involve the audience in live music performances. The symposium will combine talks about technology-mediated audience participation and a showcase of technologies for audience participation with a panel discussing the recent Breaking The Wall live music event with artists and researchers.

The speakers and panelists at the symposium are Fares Kayali, Oliver Hödl, Peter Purgathofer (TU Wien), Ruth Mateus-Berr, Thomas Wagensommerer, Uli Kühn (University of Applied Arts Vienna), Didi Bruckmayr (null.head) and Tracy Redhead (University of Newcastle, Australia). The project is a collaboration between the Vienna University of Technology, the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna with musicians Electric Indigo, null.head and Johannes Kretz.

null.head will present a performance using technology-mediated audience participation that originates from the project at the Ars Electronica Festival on Thu, 7.9. at 20:30 in the Gleishalle.
