This project cycle, Kjel, Sarah and I are working with a chronos watch – specifically its three-axis accelerometer – to allow a performer to trigger and affect samples using wrist motions. The samples for this particular performance have been curated by Kjel and myself. As things stand, Sarah (a dancer) has near-complete autonomy in the environment, but there are limitations inherent to using a single watch that require some automation. Once we wrap this performance, I’d like to experiment with two watches simultaneously to achieve tighter control and complete autonomy for a performer.
It’s lookin’ good, it’s soundin’ good, but will the studio performance be good? Find out next time on Dragon Ball Z.
