Emanations



A series of spatialized sound experiments using physical gestures and movement, turning human body into an interface for audio perspective control.

Exhibits: Maker Faire 2016, NYC Media Lab Summit 2016, Creative Tech Week 2016, Between Spaces, Pi Day: Liberty Science Centre, Parsons Gala, Disorient: Country Club

These experiments serve as interactive playgrounds, creating introspective, emergent and performative experiences within the limits of human body without any wearable sensors, as well as an investigation in embodied music cognition; generating connections between the individual, their body, movement and gestures through sound, allowing for an analysis and understanding in the roles of performer and audience.

The sonic representations of human gestures and movement develop as processes of technogenesis on a continuum of awareness of body as interface; from performative to personal.

Deriving its roots from the philosophy of nothingness to guide the methodology of invisible interaction and lack of instruction, these poetic experiences reveal themselves to their users in layers offering the right mix of abstraction in narrative and freedom in interaction to create an unguided, improvised and unique experience.
