To us, yes. Yet I've spent many years using innovative control systems
for performing electronic scores for dance, and getting very little
interest. On the one hand, many dancers don't have a grasp for live
music and interaction/improvisation at all, so my natural tendency is
to totally de-emphasise the technology in favour of what it
enables. But then, THIS approach means I can't get any press coverage,
because the media want to know what's new, different and innovative;
so I have to OVER-emphasise the technology.
This is why I hate the whole idea of cyber-conferences and
performances. On the other hand, it seems we cannot succeed in
conventional cultural circles yet. I hope this will change.
