This project investigates embodied electronic music performance using large upper body movements. It also explores how to transform viewers into performers, participants, and players through tangible interactions with a sculpture. In doing so, it explores the experience of using one's physical body to manipulate the digital representation of another person's body.
The project presents an interface that is both familiar to musicians and visible to a live audience. Originally conceived as a MIDI drum pad, the object now serves as a pressure-sensitive multitouch audio-video playback device that uses infrared presence detection.
