Legos Days II -2015

International Workshop on Movement Sonification and Learning

March 2-3 2015, Ircam, Paris

This workshop/symposium marks the end of the Legos project, which focused on sensori-motor learning in gesture-sound interactive system. The goal of this workshop is to report on the major results, illustrated with demonstrations, and discuss current trends and emerging applications (such as rehabilitation, music, sport, well-being) with guest researchers.

The event is free, but reservation is required, please email bevilacqua at ircam dot fr.
