Vox Humana

April 29 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Vox Humana invites you to a fusion of technology, art, and music celebrating the harmony between the ancient and the avant-garde. This event showcases the music of Carnegie Mellon University’s Exploded Ensemble, architectural video projections from Advanced ETB: Animation Studio: AI Generated Animation, and performance work from Advanced ETB: Digitally Mediated Performance.

Exploded Ensemble has crafted music for the pipe organ using code and custom software, breathing digital life into one of music’s oldest instruments. Within the embrace of a beautiful acoustic space, these compositions are not merely played but experienced, as they interact with architecturally mapped video projections featuring AI-generated imagery. These visuals are tailored to complement and react to the unique architectural elements of the venue, creating a dynamic and immersive environment. Performance artists will improvise live, their movements and expressions influenced by the experimental music and its interplay with the physical space. Together, these elements promise a mesmerizing exploration of how digital innovation can expand the boundaries of traditional musical performance, creating a spectacle that is as thought-provoking as it is enchanting. Join us for an evening where the past and the future converge in a symphony of sights and sounds, offering a glimpse into the limitless possibilities of artistic expression.

The Vox Humana team wishes to thank Church of the Ascension and Gary Harger for their generous support in realizing this event. This performance is made by possible by the Carnegie Mellon University IDeATE (Integrative, Design, Arts, and Technology) program, the CMU School of Art, and the CMU School of Music.
