Sound & Light Concert: UT Dallas ATEC Lecture Hall 04/21/17
This unique project class was dedicated to employing the music and philosophy of multi-Grammy award-winning artist Terence Blanchard’s as the conceptual framework for an Art and Technology collaboration that combined digital fabrication and projection mapping. The ATEC Light Squad adopted the form of a jazz quintet to work together to build props, and to create the video content based on musical compositions provided by jazz composer Terence Blanchard and his band the E-Collective.
Led by Professor Andrew Scott, students combined the full spectrum of art and technology disciplines to create original content that was refined and cohered into finished compositions through weekly critique sessions based on live interaction with the music. The collaboration culminated in a live interactive performance on April 21, 2017, by Terence Blanchard and the E-Collective in the ATEC Lecture Hall. The immersive event combined music with projection mapped animation and live video capture cast on a 31-foot sculptural relief background.
