Gynoïdes Project

Experimental Circus

Bêta Test IX part 2

November 2nd 2015

In Bêta Test IX part 2, the objective is to explore new forms of artistic expression in circus art through the use of motion capture technology, enabling performers to interactively control computer-generated sounds by mean of their own body.  By using real time sonic interaction we explore more complex multimodal relationship between music and circus performance; the enactive experience of the artist whose proprioception is enhanced by continuous embodied sonic feedback, can be perceive by the audience who can “hear” the artistic motion and “see” the sound (Taylor, Polotti and Goina 2012). The project investigate ways in witch the body may regain information about itself, a self-hacking of the body, retrieving elemental data about its functions.  Used in this manner, interactive sonification, and related artistic practices, is tool to overcome the standardized traditional format of circus, re-invent choreographic methods and approaches to the art form (Elblaus et al 2014).  Nov 2nd 12.00 at

AHA Festival Art and Science The AHA festival investigates the borders between art and science in a three-day event at the Chalmers University of Technology hosted by the Department of Architecture. An international festival intended to provide enlightening experiences, staging surprises, new thoughts and displaced perspectives that lead to alternative modes of thinking about the space between art and science. We invite scientists (physicists, historians, mathematicians, medical students), artists (dancers, musicians, painters, poets, chefs) and not least architects, who reside in these borderlands and wish to share their vision and work. The key intention is to celebrate both art and science as key knowledge building devices. November 2nd to 5th 2015
