Summer Snail is a game-inspired network piece by Felipe Hickmann that brings together two remote musician groups and two remote audiences.
My role: design of a dynamic graphic score system split in 3 applications, one for each group and a third one for the conductor/referee.
The piece is structured as a game with the aid of a dynamic graphic score (the illustration of a mountain). Both groups compete against each other to try and get to the top of the mountain.
This video shows one group of musicians in Belfast (UK) at SARC (Sonic Arts Research Centre) playing with a remote group located at University of Sao Paulo (Sao Paulo/Brazil).
