The view from LEAP looks out onto the busy traffic and tramlines of Karl Liebknecht Straße. The motion and unique time worlds expressed in these machines will act as the live elements of a moving musical score. With additional interactive projections and traditional notations we will explore several musical interpretations of this scene.

An interactive music installation Score and Seek projects animated musical notations that respond to performers as they move and perform in the space.

Andre Vida has invited 3 groups of performers to experiment with his interactive score over the course of 3 evenings.

Developed at eyebeam New York where Vida is a fellow

Score and Seek was supported by Cycling ’74 and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Berlin-based composer and saxophonist Andre Vida has performed widely as a soloist and has collaborated with a diverse group of artists including Anthony Braxton, Kevin Blechdom, Tim Exile, Yona Friedman, Jean-Baptiste Decavele, and Jamie Lidell. Most recently he has worked closely with Anri Sala on multi-media installations at the Serpentine Gallery in London, the Roman Amphitheatre in Arles (produced by the LUMA foundation), and the Museum of Modern Art in Louisiana, Denmark. He is currently working on a commission for a new solo work to be performed at Global Art Forum 7 in Doha and Dubai in 2013. Vida’s compositional work focuses on the medium and materiality of scoring and includes explorations of animation, lighting, and costume design as essential elements of a compositional system that reflects the physicality of performance practice. These works have been performed in installation by members of CalArts, the St. Louis Symphony, The European Saxophone Ensemble, Fersteinn, and by the numerous experimental musicians who performed with Vida weekly during a three-year residency in Berlin. A three-disc box set of his work from 1995 – 2011 was released on PAN and he has been featured in The Wire, TANK, Monopol, and Electronic Beats.
