In 1998 I was kindly invited to DIEM in Arhus in Denmark by then director Wayne Siegel to discuss the Drancing accelerometer music air instrument and to learn about DIEM's bending sensor air instrument.

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

Role(s)
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.
