Multimedia lab organised by SEE and ZINC took place during one week at Makan.
The french multimedia artist, Renaud Vercey, and an egyptian sound engineer, Hussein Sami, are coordinating the work between artists acting in differents disciplines.
« How to communicate between french, arabic, english, dance, light, sound, pictures ?»
The proposition was to connect each medium through digital tools using one protocol usually used in keyboard synchronisation : midi language.
Midi notes and midi controls allow to digitalize input which can be a movement, an instrument or a lighting...
The midi language doesn’t solve the comminucation problem but it gives us a common idea where each one can propose his own interpretation...
