Facebook Event BodyControlled #4

It is not novel for multimedia performances to have a strong corporeal
profile primarily using gestures or actions coming from outside of the
performer’s body. However, the inside of the body can also be a very
vital and diverse source of material for artistic purposes. This
approach changes the paradigm of the gestural expression, bringing the
processes going on under one’s skin to the fore.

BodyControlled #4 – Bio Interfacing presents three performances using
data collected from inside the human body: the EEG waves-based audio-
visual performance INsideOUT by Claudia Robles Angel, Seas of
Tranquility by Peter Kirn and Marco Donnarumma’s Music for Flesh II,
where sounds are produced – and controlled – by his muscles.

A keynote presented by Hasso-Plattner-Institute’s investigator Pedro
Lopes discusses ‘’Human-Computer Interaction: Artistic and Scientific
perspectives on augmenting our bodies’’. In conjunction with the
events of the performance night, anyone can learn more about the
artists’ methods by taking part in the workshops presented by Claudia
Robles Angel and Marco Donnarumma. Or, come to LEAP in the 2 evenings
after the performance night, and try out the instruments on display at
the Open Stage.
