VISIOPHONE

AD MORTUOS

Audiovisual Dance Performance.
The piece was divided in different sections designed to merge the physical with the virtual space, exploring design strategies of mixed reality performance.

I mainly developed the interactive visuals for the “EEG section” where a performer holding a brain computer interface (EEG) and a gyroscope interacts with the visual space and sound in real time.

The EEG creates a direct link between the performer who activates and modulate the audiovisual signal in real time by concentration levels of facial expression and additional minimalistic physical movement. With the aid of a gyroscope the visualizations follow the orientation of the body, creating the illusion of infinite space on the floor.

Visuals made with Quartz Composer, controlled live in VDMX through OSC messages.

“Ad Mortuos” is a collaborative work inspired by poet Stephanie Pope, read by LaQuetta Carpenter. Presented in March 2015 at UT Austin – Oscar G. Brockett Theatre, Austin/TX.
