In addition to capturing Morel’s performance with the Kinect and Fastmocap, Marlier recorded her heartbeat and the oxygen levels in her blood using an oximeter. Morel also used an iPhone that took altitude readings, and wore a smart bracelet running a stress control app. Marlier then imported the data from these tools into Cinema 4D, TouchDesigner and Processing to generate the visuals and sound interaction, which they’re currently fine-tuning.
Marlier and Morel like to think of _Synesthesia as visualizing the essence of dance by capturing an imperceptible imprint of Morel’s movement in space through different signals, like her body and mind. In other words, they essentially want to give a “body” to the invisible trajectories traced by Morel while dancing.
