The two musicians will collaborate with the dancers Tasos Pappas-Petridis and Mary Radou, to develop work in which they will use motion sensors to control the synthesis of sound and image. Iannis Zannos, Professor of the Audio & Visual Arts Department in Computer Music and Vicky Bismbikis, a graduate of the ITI's Audio & Visual Arts Department in programming sound and graphics programming, are also collaborating in this project.
