Copy of Ars Electronica Festival presents Lost Interferences

Saturday, September 11, 2021 - 4:00am to 5:00am
Online | Zoom


Lost Interferences is an online participatory performance presented by the Ars Electronica Festival. The project features experiences of loss collected directly from people and via the website, where you can also submit your own story.

Composer Constantin Basica performs from CCRMA on three pianos and live electronics, joined in a virtual setting by Romanian actress Maia Morgenstern and countertenor Romeo Cornelius, with an in-person audience at BRD Residence Scene9 in Bucharest, RO. For the online audience, the show is dubbed live into English by Irina Margareta Nistor.

The three elements of Lost Interferences—participatory performance, interactive website, and participatory sound installation—utilize an AI system devised and trained by Prateek Verma that associates music to text and vice versa based on attributes of the language such as affect and sentiment.

An Ars Electronica Festival pass (€0-9) grants access to all online festival events, including Lost Interferences, and can be purchased here.

This event will also be presented on Zoom on September 11 at 4 AM PDT with free admission, in case you are awake for some reason, or if you need a more accommodating time zone.
