LilyPad Arduino Wireless Dance Costume #ArtTuesday

LilyPad Arduino Wireless Dance Costume Performance from Eric Lindsay on Vimeo.

Performance of Utam Moses (choreographer) and Eric Lindsay’s (composer) “The Space Between Us”, for computationally enhanced dancers and MAX/MSP. The costumes are embedded with LilyPad Ardino technology; One of the dancers’ (with the round skirt) costume combines LilyPad components and a XBee (wireless transmitter) together with pressure and flex sensors connected by conductive thread, which detects and transmits the movements of the dancer to the composer’s laptop, which are then used to generate and control sound within a MAX/MSP environment.

Instead of a dancer’s movements being a slave to the fixed constraints of a pre-composed piece of music, the wireless dance costume puts the power of live musical composition in the hands (body) of the dancer, who can explore and improvise new shapes and structures within an otherwise free musical environment.

“The Space Between Us” was premiered at the Buskirk-Chumley Theatre in Bloomington, IN in April 2010. The project is a team effort comprised of Eric Lindsay (Composer), Amy Burrell and Jay Garst (Costume Designer), Utam Moses (Choreographer) and Benjamin Zaitlen and Alex Jacobs (Software and Hardware Design).

The piece was supported by Professor Kylie Peppler at Indiana University and is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 0855886.
