Interactive Performances for Dance, Sound and Biosignals

Emovere project focuses on developing interactive dance performances that utilize biosignals to amplify, understand and connect with the internal functions of the human body. We use physiological signals such as electromyography (EMG), electrocardiography (ECG) and electrodermal activity (EDA) as materials that access an intimate and – usually – inaccessible biological dimension, that is in constant change affected by external and internal stimuli. This workshop will focus on understanding the meaning and possibilities of different physiological signals (biosignals) and the technologies available to measure them with practical demonstrations using different biosensors and interactive designs. We will discuss the creative methods used in our work, presenting the rationale behind interaction designs, compositional techniques and outcomes of different artistic pieces that we have developed, as well as discussing the work of prominent artists in the field. The workshop will include a practical co-creative exercise using the heart rate of the participants and their own voices with the objective of creating a collaborative sound environment that builds on the participants’ explorations around sound poetry and biofeedback.
