‘Azamen’ is a series of interactive dance performances by ‘Runabout project’
Azamen is a series of interactive dance performances that use a special pair of wireless sensor costumes that connect the movements of the two dancers with a computer. The bodies are thus turned into musical instruments that are capable of capturing sounds and words, playing them over and over again, modulating and transforming them until they create the perfect audio environment for their dance. A special custom made software connects the costume-sensors with a microphone and loudspeakers and enables the direct live interaction of body movement and sound.
