Performance/screening interacting with *EMO-Synth* by *Valery Vermeulen*hosting:

*Judith Hummel *(dance) *Klaus Janek *(processed and acoustic double
bass) *Claudio
Rocchetti* (electronics)

Montage Cinema Revived by the EMO-Synth is the final performance in a
series realized by the collective Office Tamuraj and the curator Astrid
David. A renewing interactive multimedia system, the *EMO-Synth* (Produced
& Founded by new media artist *Valery Vermeulen*), plays a central role as
well as the emotional man-machine, based on artificial intelligence,
affective computing, psychophysiology, algorithmic music composition +
sound and image generation.
During performances and demonstrations the system automatically generates
and manipulates sounds and images to direct the user in certain predefined
emotional states.
Emotional reactions are hereby measured and processed by the means of
biosensors that register various psychofysiological parameters such as
heart rate (ECG) and stress level (GSR, galvanic skin response).
For the realisation of Montage Cinema Revived by the EMO-Synth, the
EMO-Synth is integrated into a cinematographic setting.

During the performances at Liebig12, the EMO-Synth will automatically
generate ideal personalized soundtracks with maximal emotional impact  that
accompany re-edited versions of dedicated experimental video/film material.
For the automatic music generation, synthesized as well as live music
sounds are used and in this case a full set has been prepared by musicians
*CLAUDIO ROCCHETTI* & *KLAUS JANEK* with a performative dance intervention

The performances of Montage Cinema Revived by the EMO-Synth rely on the
most recent prototype – Prototype 05.2 – of the EMO-Synth.
This prototype was realized during a residency and exhibition called
Tangible Feelings at the Center for Digital Cultures and Technologies
(iMAL, www.imal.org) in september 2011.
