The Creation of a Stage Organism: the Visuality of Emovere

The interdisciplinary project Emovere pursues a dance performance proposal that includes audio and video with interactive projections. To achieve this purpose, it proposes the utilization of technology used in medicine (sensors) in order to extract bio-data and create an interaction in real time. This technique has already been used by musician…

Sound Composition

The sound composition of Emovere was developed based on a set of decisions and boundary conditions that were addressed by experimentation and exploration. We decided to use audio files instead of synthesizing sounds with the data delivered by the sensors, which would have been much more complex for the sound composition and the design of the interaction modes. This way, everything that we composed was stored…

Designing Sound Interactions for Biosignals and Dancers

For Emovere, the performers worked with an emotional induction technique called Alba Emoting. This method was developed to help recognize, induce, express and regulate six basic emotions: fear, sadness, eroticism, joy, tenderness and anger. Basically, the training consisted of introducing the performers in the postural, respiratory…
