Second Body, Anarchy Dance Theatre, Nov. 2014

I have been invited by someone who was a student in my class “Soundscape and Sound Art” at National Taiwan University, a few years ago, to collaborate with the company 叁式 UltraCombos. This team, specialized in digital art and computer graphics, was working with the 安娜琪舞蹈劇場 Anarchy Dance Theatre, for a performance where the body of the dancer is covered by a live interactive video projection. To be able to create the video projection in 3D all around the body and on the floor with algorithm able to capture the position and movement of the body and create a stream of video in real-time sounds a bit tricky, and in any case far above my understanding. But still, I was lucky enough to create a soundtrack for this performance which happened in its version experimental version, with dancers River Lin and Shao-Ching Hung, on Oct. 31 – Nov. 2, 2015, in Taipei, Taiwan.

Below is an extract of the audiovisual documentation of the project.
