On this page you will find several presentations of productions, which were performed across the duration of this research project, in which I collaborated as a composer and/or performer and/or programmer. Although they hold no direct relation to the presented research, they all served as case studies in regard to previously discussed topics of ‘instrument’, ‘communication’ and computer musician’s performance practice in general. Furthermore, an overview of all concerts, which took place between 2013 and 2016, is presented.
