„GAPPP: Gamified Audiovisual Performance and Performance Practice“ is an arts-based research project conceived and run by composer, audiovisual artist and project leader Marko Ciciliani. Computer Games have become a fashionable area of research, which has been covered by many different fields of research in the humanities and in the arts. However, only to a comparatively small extent have computer game elements been explored in the realm of audiovisual composition and performance.
Game-interaction – and the doubling of the player in the game in a virtual space – offer a large potential to create a liveness quality of a novel kind. This does not only concern the performer who is interacting with a responsive audiovisual system but can also engage an audience as “backseat-players”. This artistic research project therefore sets out to explore the combination of game strategies and performer interactions for its artistic potential beyond the mere imitation of computer games.
Kilgore (2018) for two performers and a game system by Marko Ciciliani has been developed in the framework of GAPPP.
Here, two performers interact via two instances of the same game; their actions mutually shape the other performer’s game. An extensive 3D landscape works at the same time as additional instrument and score in which the performers have to fullfill concrete tasks and goals.
Barbara Lüneburg developed Slices of Life (2016/17) in the framework of the artistic research project TransCoding-
From ‚Highbrow Art‘ to Participatory Culture supported by the Austrian Science Fund as PEEK-Project AR 259-G21).
The topic of the artwork is identity and the many facets identity can take on. Lüneburg investigated, if people can be
encouraged via social media to contribute to a multimedia artwork and what this does to art, artist and contributors.
Images, texts, and sounds samples for the show are to great parts contributions of TransCoding’s community who she
and her team inspired to get creative for the project.
