Solid Movement

for dance, sensor suite and interactive electronics

[ 2005 ]

A contrasting multi- layered performance of passive and active interactivity. The performance consists of a live solo dancer with a sensor-suite, a projected video and live-electronics in a quadraphonic setup.

The sound of the performance is generated by synthesis models controlled by the dancer’s sensor-suite. This sensor-suite monitors her movements, such as the acceleration of her legs and the bending of her finger. The control structure of this suite is set up in such a way that the dancer not plays the music, but in effect conducts the direction of the music in a subtle and flexible relation, distinctive to a live performance.
