McMaster’s LIVELab

The people in the audience at McMaster University’s LIVE Lab are participating in a series of six performances where they will interact with musicians in different ways. Using the tablet given the audience is able to choose vote for which instrument gets a solo, others will be wired with monitors to measure physical response.

The point of the LIVE Lab, and the concert series, is to understand how live music affects people, how their feedback affects performers and whether that interaction enhances their enjoyment.

The LIVE Lab goes beyond toe tapping, using sensors to measure physical reactions to the show, and how they influence the enjoyment of both the audience and performers.
