The INTERFACE project envisions a hypothetical operating system designed for creative collaboration. The system serves as a framework for live audio-visual performances encompassing generative visuals, creative coding and original electronic music.
Version 1.0 (2020) was developed as a reaction to the ongoing retreat of the performing arts into the digital space and sought to explore the intersection between technology and art as well as the potential for meaningful expression in the virtual world. A key goal of the project is to create a performance format for the future; one that does not try to emulate the inimitable nature of real-world interactions, but rather embrace the abstraction and limitations of the digital medium in order to create experiences incomparable to physical forms.
For it’s second iteration, the INTERFACE has been re-built from the ground up by technologist Lalindra Amarasekara and will showcase a musical performance by electronic musicians Nigel Perera and Asvajit Boyle in collaboration with renowned bass-guitar player, Shivantha Fernando, and accomplished percussionist, Divanka Sewmin.
