Design Everywhere

The Convergence of Music, Technology, and Design with Haig Armen

When we think of creativity, it's natural to define it through the lens of the specific craft we directly relate to. I'm a designer and musician, both professionally and personally. And even though I associate myself with both, it has taken me a long time to embrace my music background as a tool in my design work. Our conversation today explores the convergence of music, technology, and design in process, methodology, and the creation of experimental musical instruments. It's part one of a discussion with Haig Armen - professor, designer, and musician living in Vancouver, British Columbia. For the last 10+ years, Haig has led the Interaction Design program at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. His research explores music technology design, focusing on new gestural interfaces, data sonification, and music visualization. His most recent efforts are in design-led entrepreneurship and creating new musical instruments using emerging technologies.
