About the artform
Lucid by Vordenker has been made possible by the pioneers of interactive media. We’d like to acknowledge the great minds behind Cycling74 (David Zicarelli) and Max/MSP (Miller Puckette et al), who have inspired composers in the 21st century to explore algorithmic composition and data-responsive environments. Lucid has drawn from interactive music, improvisation and conceptual art concepts that have been developed in contemporary performance and art-music styles over the last century in various schools across the globe, including in visual art, performance art and music.
We’d like to thank IRCAM whose knowledge has been proliferated globally by an incredible network of teachers and mentors, and acknowledge that this artform has, in addition to its digital influence, been also informed by the various cross-artform training the composers/experience-makers have all had.
