Sawtooth

March 31st, 2010 | Filed under Abstracts

Sawtooth (2009) emphasizes multimedia and motion capture, integrating performance, sound, and animation into a unified experience. The musician’s physical gestures in space are captured by a video camera, and translated simultaneously into both music and animation.
As the action becomes more complex, the software underlying this process also begins to make autonomous contributions, adding new layers of audio-visual density, and creating new challenges for the improvising performer.
