During #intersections VOL.11 on October 23, 2019 at Rialto Theatre, Montreal Digital Spring will address the potential and challenges of the user experience, through a panel discussion of various sectors of digital creativity, combined with an innovative concert featuring more than 40 musicians from the Orchestre21.
UX or User Experience is the main issue for designers at the moment. At the beginning, the concept seemed to be more specifically related to the digital sector, referring to the experience of a user when interacting with an interface or a device. But the desire to create an unforgettable and positive experience leads creators in all industries in a whirlwind in order to optimize sensations, on the user side, and processes, on the technological side.
In search of increasingly bold designs, it will become imperative to constantly update our understanding of human behaviour and needs. But how far can we go? And what is the role of technology?
#intersections VOL.11 offers you a live user experience with a concert by the Orchestre21. Thanks to an extraordinary partnership, a conductor and a software engineering expert have teamed up to create unique works inspired by modern orchestral compositions, based on the gestural of the conductor wearing a jacket with sensors. The performance will transport the audience into a world of light effects and projections.
