Audiences, Live! Understanding and augmenting audience dynamics at live events. – Download Presentation
What makes live performance compelling? How does it differ from relays or recordings? This event will explore the emergence of new techniques for capturing, understanding and instrumenting the dynamics of live audience interaction; both performer-audience and audience-audience.
The aim is to promote discussion of how digital technologies are transforming the experience and analysis of live events and is aimed at those creating or producing live events for audiences or consumers, and interested academics.
Professor Pat Healey, Dr Colombine Gardair, Toby Harris and Kleomenis Katevas will present the audience interaction work of the Cognitive Science group at Queen Mary University of Londoncogsci.eecs.qmul.ac.uk. They will demonstrate how technology can provide real-time information about people’s reactions to a live event and the new kinds of research on audience engagement that it makes possible. They will also illustrate some ways in which these technologies can be used by the Creative and Cultural Industries to enhance the experience of live performance.
This event took place at Rich Mix on Monday 9th June 2014. Presentation from the event can be downloaded below:
