Taras Mashtalir (Machine Libertine) 
Technique: Video art, sound sculpture, interactive applications 
Target Audience: Developers, IT specialists 

Participants of the workshop, experts from the field of IT and computer technologies, are acquainted with the concept and history of sound sculptures, learn about the technologies used in this field, and participate in a poetic media performance by Machine Libertine. 

Art in public space shapes the character of the city, more traditional statues and public monuments in the city usually don’t have sound incorporated into them. Nevertheless, they are surrounded by a variety of sounds: noise from construction, talking, the hum of machinery, etc. A steady stream of such sounds we call "sound pollution". One of the ways to improve the climate of public spaces to eliminate sound pollution is via sound design. Sounds of the city are included into the composition of the works, transforming them into a harmonious piece of music. A therapeutic oasis is formed around a sound sculpture, a special space for respite from the busy rhythm of the city. Interactivity is a central element of a sound sculpture: the sound parameters are determined by the audience, the data on the time of day, time of year, weather conditions, etc. Such multi-channel sound composition is designed to breathe life into static sculptural artefacts, as well as to create harmonious sound aesthetics for the urban environment. 

The following link contains the list and descriptions of the programs that should be installed on MacBooks prior to the workshop.
and this link has additional documentation about the last workshop held in St Petersburg earlier this year.
