PATHFINDER (Christos Michalakos) - Performance & Microtalk

Christos Michalakos Pathfinder

Created and performed by composer, performer, sound artist and software developer Christos Michalakos, Pathfinder (2016) is an audiovisual performance-game for a solo drummer, exploring the synergies between multiple contemporary creative practices. The work navigates between music composition, improvisation, projection/light art and game art. At its heart lies a bespoke electroacoustic instrument, the augmented drum-kit. Christos will perform Pathfinder and also give a short talk on designing the piece.
