electronic music performance

performance at Festival Semibreve, Braga 11 2011

In colaboration with Vitor Lago Silva (1971-2013).
This project was born from the intention of creating an instrument of creation/performance of electronic music that would allow a direct and physical expression from the performer. For that it was created a suit equiped with multiple sensors that communicates in real time with a digital system via radio waves.

the suit

This system was built to transform the performer’s movements into music, exploring various movements of the body (legs, arms, hands...), which were captured by the sensors. This way we tried to create a form of musical expression that was more visceral, i. e. more directly related to physical impulses of the performer, constantly battling the digital music system that transform them into music.
