The Research Team in Technology Applied to Dance, InTAD invites to the virtual workshop “Interactive image and sound for the scene with Isadora”.
The Workshop consists of the approach to interactive digital technology for the scene through the visual programming language, VPL, Isadora, in virtual mode. It is aimed at practitioners of the performing arts and performance, VJs, choreographers, authors and theater directors, performers, visual artists, musicians, authors of interactive works such as visual and sound installations, digital artists, among others.
Registration form: https://forms.gle/DnJKNTaKNxrDEhDu5. Teacher: Aníbal Zorrilla. Term: six weekly classes of two hours. On Thursdays, September 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30 and October 7 at 7:00 p.m. On Saturday, October 9, a virtual show will be held using Skype, Isadora, OBS and YouTube. No prior knowledge is required. Capacity of 10 attendees. Course participants authorize the use of the images generated in the course for dissemination purposes. The workshop language is Spanish.
Fee: ARS$ 6900.- or u$s 40.- Payment by electronic wallets, transfers, Mercado Pago or cryptocurrencies. The place is reserved with a 20% non-refundable deposit. The balance must be paid before the first class. The fee includes a temporary license from Isadora that covers the duration of the course and the sample. When filling out the form we communicate to coordinate the payment.
Isadora software is a graphical programming environment that provides interactive control over digital media, with special emphasis on real-time manipulation of digital video. It collects the movement information received by different types of sensors to manipulate digital video, music synthesizers and lights, among others. Isadora allows most parameter values to be changed in real time, allowing an infinite variety of design possibilities that react to data arising from the actions of performers, viewers, generative algorithms, or the operator himself.
Isadora offers efficient video playback for most native codecs also the high-performance HAP codec. Isadora’s modular system allows you almost unlimited ways to apply effects to any video stream and change its appearance in real time. Use a scene-based approach; Like a play, Isadora defines scenes to divide content and functionalities. Using integrated Art-Net or DMX inputs and outputs, Isadora allows synchronization of lighting control with video and audio, as well as the possibility of interactive control in real time.
Images from a single computer can be sent to multiple projectors or displays, a feature limited only by the power of the available hardware. Additionally, Isadora’s built-in tools allow you to create large-scale seamless images made up of multiple overlapping projections mixed into one. The mapping tool, IzzyMap, provides functionalities to create complex compositions, and the control of its parameters in real time allows dynamic and interactive mapping.
Isadora’s special combination of real-time video processing, its ability to send or receive video to or from other applications, and its programmable logic make it the perfect tool for creating remote performances.
