The Fluxus Tree is an automatic composition centred around interactions with a collection of experimental interactive sculptures. Dancers (or anyone else) interacts with the sculptures and so creates data from sensors which generates electronic sounds and music notation live. This live notation is then played by the composer and occasional (and excellent) 'cellist Cheryl Frances-Hoad.

First performed as a part of Degrees of Synchrony: an original dance and music performance investigating the boundaries between synchronisation and simultaneity. Performance involving acoustic and electronic sound with choreographer Jane Turner and composer-performers Tom Hall, Cheryl Frances-Hoad and Richard Hoadley. Also featuring the dancer Amy Holly.

13th May 2012, Kettle's Yard, Cambridge.

Composed by Richard Hoadley, performed by Richard Hoadley, Jane Turner, Amy Holly and Cheryl Frances-Hoad, May 13th, Kettle's Yard, Cambridge, UK.
