Mubone at the Conference on Movement and Computing (MOCO) 2019 and the NYC Electroacoustic Improv Summit (EIS) 2019

Live at NYC EIS, performed by mubonist Kalun Leung

Within the first year of development, the mubone made its artistic and scholarly debuts at the NYC Electroacoustic Improvisation Summit and the Conference on Movement and Computing respectively. While I stayed put in the US northeast and performed a 10 minute improvisation at NYU City Tech in Brooklyn, Travis West travelled to Tempe, Arizona where MOCO was held and he performed an improvisation and demo for conference attendees.

Both were really well received and the other performances and conferences were inspiring to say the least, like the Tárogató and electronics piece performed by NYU Professor Esther Lamneck. Talk about mixing old (the instrument dates back to the 15th century) with the new.

Some mapping choices outlined in this cute illustration included in our paper for MOCO 2019.
