Kaitlyn Aurelia-Smith Presents: TouchThePlants w/ Cy Gorman

Los Angeles, 15.05.23

With Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Cool Maritime

Composer and modular synth expert Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith presents TouchThePlants on NTS' Los Angeles studio once a month for a round-up of favourites and inspirations from her label TouchThePlants.

As the founder of the tech-wellbeing startup, Nurobodi, Cy’s work bridges technology, design, and holistic health using a combination of embodied practices and tech-based harmonic ‘fine-tuning’ methodologies to entrain the mind-body towards transformative heightened or altered states. Cy is also signed to the boutique Melbourne music label Heard and Felt and with organic release support from BBC (UK) & KCRW (USA) for his recent album 'Hiwave'. His music has been described, among other things, as "Thundercat discovering Buddhism and Artificial Intelligence at the same time". Cy prefers to call this 'Hiwave'

Cy Gorman's interdisciplinary collaborative creative practice focuses on the design and development of site-specific audiovisual resonance environments. Modalities of applied skills include systems analyisis, interaction design, multimedia installation, live or pre-produced video environments, creative lighting environments, projection mapping, sound design, and dance-fllm making. As an interdisciplinary arts collaborator he has worked with Chunky Move, Stephanie Lake, and Tony Yap, and his work as a maker/director has featured on separate occasions in France and Bangladesh at the World Dance Alliance Global Summit.

Cy's work as an academic and researcher includes the design, development and application of AI-ethics interaction, aesthetic vs anti-aesthetic experiences with a focus on multisensory perception within digital or interactive environments and transformative colour-resonance environments. His research is realized through theory, creative practice and real-world problem-solving through design. He is a researcher, course designer, and lecturer at RMIT Melbourne for the Bachelor of Digital Media Design in the creative applications of blockchain, immersive audiovisual techniques, and 360 audiovisual design for XR.
