Quantum Canticorum at the Mumford Theatre, April 2014
Quantum Canticorum is my contribution to the music and dance piece Quantum².
Quantum Canticorum is an Interdisciplinary performance in which dance and music interact using body tracking technologies and bespoke sensing environments to expand our understandings of the interrelationship between the body, its environment and expression, between science and art, culture and nature. Dance is converted into data which are then used to trigger and modulate expressive algorithms which generate in real-time both audio and music notation - also performed live.Although the piece is generated live each time it is performed, its duration remains approximately 10 minutes. This event is led by composer Richard Hoadley and Turning Worlds Dance Company, choreographer Jane Turner. It is a part of the Quantum² project which is supported by Arts Council England. Music: Richard Hoadley Dance: Jane Turner
The piece is primarily composed in the music programming environment, SuperCollider.
