Speaker: Maurizio Martinucci (aka TeZ)
Title: Towards a Spectral Sensorium
In his talk, Towards a Spectral Sensorium, TeZ illustrates his personal evolution through different paradigms of creative practices that embrace art, science, technology and philosophy. From his early audiovisual works to more recent borderline scientific experiments, TeZ’s independent research challenges the conventional notion of art as representation, in favour of that of art as experience. In the Spectral Sensorium, the senses of the spectator are immersed, re-focused and finally saturated in a spatial orchestration of vibrational phenomena.
Maurizio Martinucci (aka TeZ) is an Italian interdisciplinary artist and independent researcher, living and working in Amsterdam. He uses technology as a means to explore perceptual effects and the relationship between sound, light and space. He focuses primarily on generative compositions with spatialized sound for live performances and installations. In his works TeZ adopts custom developed software and hardware, featuring original techniques of sonification and visualization to investigate and magnify subtle vibrational phenomena. In recent years his research has extended to the ideation and creation of specific architectural structures and unconventional sound and light propagation methods to enhance immersivity and multisensory perception.
TeZ is also the brainfather of the ‘Optofonica’ platform for Synesthetic Art-Science, located in Amsterdam.
