|<nettime-ann> IntelligentDesigner - Two June Exhibits|
. IntelligentDesigner* (ID) will be ready for general consumption this Fall, but you can check out its most recent iteration at two June events. If you are in Pittsburgh (PA, USA), it will be part of The Urban Garden Party at the Mattress Factory this Friday, June 9th. If you are in Williamsburg (Brooklyn, NY, USA) come out to MonkeyTown next Friday, June 15th.
The Mattress Factory event will incorporate improvisational dance, projection and sound co-choreographed by Heather Mallak and Dave Mansueto.
At Monkeytown, ID will be aurally and visually woven into the improvisational music of ChristianScienceMinotaur. By way of a bongo-height touch-screen kiosk, audience members can alter the music as it being played by live musicians.
Until the official launch this Fall, the best way to wrap you head around this visual-musical paradigm is to go check it out for yourself.

* IntelligentDesigner is net software that enables pretty much anyone to control things in an uncontrollable way. ID was originally invented to enable improvisational behavior simulating human emotional mechanics between his life-size emotive robots Neil and Iona. In its current incarnation, ID can be used to easily create rich multilayered living music from samples, with many more esoteric applications coming down the pike. Details will be found on Jason Van Anden's website, smileproject.com, soon.
