This project uses human body movement’s energy and transduce it into sound and images in a real time interaction. Was made using Openframeworks for Computer vision and analisys, Processing for visuals and Pure Data for Sound.
There are two versions of the system.
The first is as an interactive show where a dancer/musician makes a sound composition with his movements. With postures and gestures he or she can control the system, creating a corporal language. After telling the machine what kind of sound is going to be used the performer makes a gesture to start recording the movement. When the movement is done, the performer stops and inmediatly the machine start to reproduce the composition in a looped way. Repeating this action the performer makes a hole concert.
The second is as an interactive instalation where the visitors can make their own performances, creating what we call Openformances, as shown in this video.
Ona System has being migrated to be used with the Kinect camera, to expand its posibilities with 3D motion capture.
