11th International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

Interactive performance based on the elementary gesture sonification principles of the EGGS system. The system is used in a form that can also be applied to non-trained bodies (non-dancers). Disco Dancing is a way of moving that is totally personal and has none of the established barriers of dance language. The trajectories of the dancer's hands are analyzed and classified in elementary gestalts. The dancer triggers and modulates sounds with her body, while the laptop performers change sound palettes and mapping following a predetermined score. A graphical representation of sounds and mapping is visually projected.
