Published by Yago de Quay
Dance Jockey presents a musical performance entitled “Where art
Thou?” where sounds are controlled by sensors on the dancer's body. These sensors
manipulate music in real time by acquiring data about body actions and
transmitting the information to a control unit to create a broad range of musical
events. The result is an innovative 10 minute theatrical performance where the
author explores a world of sounds, staged several times in Norway and Portugal
and scheduled for New Interfaces for Musical Expression and Re-new:
International Conference on Interactive Media Art.

The result is an innovative 10 minute theatrical performance where theauthor explores a world of sounds, staged several times in Norway and Portugaland scheduled for New Interfaces for Musical Expression and Re-new:International Conference on Interactive Media Art.Xsens MVN is a commercial 3D motiontracking product that is used mainly by thearmy, industry, medicine and films. It consistsof 17 inertial sensors and an application forrecording and exporting data from thesensors. Each sensor encapsulates anaccelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer.When worn by the dancer, they provide adetailed 3D virtual representation of the body as well as orientation. Through this suit, thedancer is able to perform music throughprecise body movements.

The variety and intricacy of theserecombination processes contributeprofoundly to the current diversity of performative structures and meaningswithin the arts.
