SITC 2020

 Feedback Loop Performance

Friday 27th - Sunday 29th November 2020

Free,  ZOOM

 

'Feedback Loops brings together dance, music (generated from live human body data) and people’s stories to share an insight into the relationship between mind and body.' 'Throughout the performance the dancer’s movements controls which notes are being played, the blood volume pulse (the graph on a heart rate monitor) is controlling the probability of notes being played and the volume of the notes (how hard a pianos key is pressed) and the electrodermal activity (the amount of sweat on their skin) is controlling how the notes sound, either bright or dark, far away or close etc.' - King's College London
