R & D: the Drancing accelerometer real-time music synthesis "air instrument" and Drancel body motion visuals

Developer and inventor, video editor

Adapted the Drancing gestural performance air instrument system to use PureData/GEM patch-based synthesis and Nintendo Wii remote controllers as wireless 3D accelerometers via Bluetooth for real-time generation of music and visuals from human movement and dance. Edited videos and educational online screenshots of the patch-based synthesis.

Created the LED-based Drancel system for translating body movement into light shows and visuals.
