Richard Cáceres — Timeline of work
Richard Cáceres is an artist who creates
experimental systems for musical expression.
DESMA 152B was a freeform class was led by Professor Chandler McWilliams. The premise was make something using alternative computer interfaces. I ended guiding the class in the direction towards creating musical instruments and forming a group to perform with our inventions. I developed a conducting language could be used for improvised group performances. Gestures could signal individual performers to navigate in a predetermined musical set of possibilities. At the senior show, I took the role of conductor, while Chandler McWiliams performed on my Photokoto. Our conducting language was influenced by Walter Thompson's "Sound Painting" language.
