This hands-on workshop on Tracking Technologies is oriented
towards performing artists/choreographers who are interested in using
technologies, as well as people with a technical/scientific background
to apply their technical knowledge in an artistic domain.
In the performing arts exciting new ways of expression are
becoming possible by recent advances in tracking and sensing
Body-worn sensors and large area position tracking systems are now
for use in performances, enabling for example new types of interaction.
The workshop will set out to investigate data
interpretations from real-time tracking devices and mappings of this
artistic purposes, using max/msp. Working in small groups with a
leader the participants will explore two integrated modules:
Data interpretations for the performing arts, with
applications such as movement analysis and interactive soundscapes.
introduction to state of the art tracking technology.
Participants will be challenged to create their own systems
that interpret real-time tracking data.
After completing the workshop participants will have a clear
understanding of how data from tracking systems can be interpreted for
the performing arts.
The workshop is accompanied by the seminar Interrupting
Realities , which will attempt to deal with some of the theoretical
raised by this seminar. Entrance to the seminar is free for workshop
