Motion-Enabled Live Electronics

Eckel, Gerhard and Pirrò, David

Sound and Music Computing Conference, SMC 2009


Motion-Enabled Live Electronics (MELE) is a special approach towards live electronic music aiming at increasing the degree of the performers’ embodiment in shaping the sound processing. This approach is characterized by the combination of a high-resolution and fully-3D motion tracking system with a tracking data processing system tailored towards articulating the relationship between bodily movement and sound processing. The artistic motivations driving the MELE approach are described, an overview of related work is given and the technical setup used in a workshop exploring the approach is introduced. Brief descriptions of the pieces realized in the workshop and performed in the final concert inform the presentation of the conclusions drawn from the workshop.
