glui aims to provide custom technology for musicians and artists that have needs more specific than commercial offerings and more practical than academic research.
A common theme among many glui projects is how to mediate between physical and virtual domains. This goes both-way as we develop sensor instruments that bring musical gestures inside the computer, as well as installations where the computer affects the outside world, be it thru motors or spatialized sound.
glui also pursues interfacing in a social sense as we seek to find a common ground where techician and artist can exchange ideas and concepts, rather than turn-key solutions. This is complemented with our series of workshops.
In 1999 Nic moved to Chicago where he is now heading the sound department at the SAIC, Chicago. Since then glui mainly refers to Sukandar’s activities as a self-employed instrument maker.
In 2008 glui moved to former “Haus des Reisens” next to SchneidersBuero.
Since 2009 the lab is located at Manteuffelstr. 77.
