Role: lead interaction designer and coding
Seeinteracting Sound Space is a performance on the unlimited possibilities of interaction between dance, music and technology. The dancer, thanks to the software developed by our sound engineers, interacts with the cellist transforming his sound through the movement in the real time.
It is an exciting play between the dancer and the musician in the present moment, based on the unpredictability of the improvisation and on the decision of making choices in the time flow.
Seeinteracting Sound Space is about the Hic et Nunc, that moment full of poignancy where everything can happen.
Seeinteracting is an ongoing research project regarding 3D motion capture technologies applied to sound, dance, and other performing arts, as well as the biomedical field. It was born withing the MIS, “Master in Ingegneria del Suono e dello Spettacolo” (Master of sound Engineering and Perfoming Arts) at the Electronic Engineering Department of the Università degli Studi di Roma “Tor Vergata”, from the cooperation between Marco Bertola, Emiliano Daddario, Maurizio Massarelli e Gianluca Susi, all of which teach some of the Master courses there. This project also features the collaboration of the dancer/coreograph Livia Massarelli as well as other students that are working on their thesis in the department of electronic engineering.
