Synergies between sound, movement and image in audiovisual real time systems and environments.


In this talk I will share some of my work on interactive audiovisual systems for installations and performance work. With a wide range of typologies (from an experimental installation with mills and water, an av live act, or a reactive kinetic structure, among others) my focus goes to the relations and synergies between sound, visuals and movement in real time and on the transmutability of digital data between these three domains.
In each project I try to explore the different system configurations of inputs and outputs that can be used, and its expressive potential.


Rodrigo Carvalho (Porto, 1983), designer & new media artist from Porto/Portugal.
Graduated in Design (U. Aveiro-PT, 2005) and with a Master Degree in Digital Arts (U.Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona,2009).
Rodrigo’s work on live visuals, coding and interactive art involves a range of different outputs, from screen digital work, interactive installations, audiovisual live acts, or interactive visuals for stage performance. His work has been exhibited/performed at events and locations including: Sonar Festival(Barcelona, 2012),Mutek (Barcelona 2013), ISEA(Dubai, 2014), Ears, Eyes and Feet (Austin, 2014), VAVA showroom (Berlin/Barcelona/Porto/Paris, 2014/2015), XCOAX (2014) among others.
