Mapping Gesture Capture Interdisciplinary Artistic Work Collaboration

Abstract:

Working with dancers to generate musical material has been the interest of many composers since such technologies became available. My work focuses on a particular kind of dance - a fire dancer - to generate sonic material. Working with a fire dancer in a collaborative environment creates a unique set of difficulties with rewarding outcomes.
