Description

WWW.SALVONOSTRATO.COM salvonostrato.com/livect (DOC) LIVECT is an Interactive Art Project that explores the possibilities to detect real-time body motion using a Microsoft Kinect Sensor. It is a study of the human body as it marks its position in space and time. Using "natural interaction movements" captured from a dancer's body, this experimental project investigates the potential of combining 'Generative Design' into live performances and 3D motion capture/tracking. Written in Quartz Composer, Max 6 and openFrameworks, Livect [ver 2.0] is a new intuitive application that measures the depth of the body in order to create custom particle emitters and 3D meshes inside a virtual world. The latest version includes an iPad app that, wirelessly, gives complete control over the LIVECT visual mixing and effects processing. The aim of the project is to create two experimental music/live performance videos from the recorded motion data of a real person. For this project I asked two dancers and choreographers to interpret two musical pieces -- Matchless & Motion Bones -- as closely as possible with the movement of their own bodies. Both musical works are mainly composed using sounds of cracking bones, recorded from a contortionist's body using six microphones in a 6.0 surround setup. However, the compositional techniques adopted in the musical pieces are widely different. The sound design of Matchless is contemporary and creates another world through the use of the cracking bones sounds and typical everyday background noise that has been heavily modified. It is a six minute 4.2 Dolby Surround composition, which provides a sense of movement within the sounds. Contrarily, Motion Bones is a three minute 2.0 stereo musical work. It has been composed under the direction of the choreographer/dancer in order to create an experimental deep-house track. Unlike Matchless, Motion Bones has a static tempo of 123 bmp, which gives the performer a different way to interpret the music with body movements. vimeo.com/66437021 DoC vimeo.com/66410776 Motion Bones vimeo.com/66108076 Matchless SALVO NOSTRATO - Director, Sound Designer and LIVECT Developer Manuel Succi - Real-Time Visuals Elena Cocci & Jalienne Li - Dancer/Choreographer Gualtiero Fisauli - Director of Photography Esperanza Jimenez & Valentina Michelangeli
