Desta and I started collaborating. We composed a soundscape on her poem “Iets Paars” that can be intuitively performed with the body.
On september 29th, I demonstrated a work-in-progress version of my newly built instrument at Healthy Ageing festival in Groningen. I experimented with translating body movements to violin sounds. With the installation / musical instrument that I demonstrated on the festival, people could play a virtual violin with arm movements, and trigger background ambience with body position.
This experiment came out of my interest to make music with intuitive body movements, similar to my previous works Our Harmony and Phone Cello. I built this instrument with Kinect, Delicode_NI_Mate, Max 7, and Ableton Live 9.
