The design of technological interfaces for interactions between music, dance and garment movements

Lamounier, Natacha; Naveda, Luiz; Bicalho, Adriana

The present work explores the design of multimodal interfaces that capture hand gestures and promote interactions between dance, music and wearable technologic garment. We aim at studying the design strategies used to interface music to other domains of the performance, in special, the application of wearable technologies into music performances. The project describes the development of the music and wearable interfaces, which comprise a hand interface and a mechanical actuator attached to the dancer's dress. The performance resulted from the study is inspired in the butoh dances and attempts to add a technological poetic as music-dance-wearable interactions to the traditional dialogue between dance and music.
