Abstract:

  • This talk presents some recent work from our research project EyesWeb concerning the development and experimenting of algorithms for expressive movement analysis. The computational models presented are inspired by several sources, including Rudolf Laban’s Theory of Effort. The ultimate goal is to contribute toward a deeper understanding of the relations between gesture, music, and visual languages, and enable artists with conceptual as well as system tools for interactive performance. The EyesWeb system tools for the design of interactive performance applications are also shortly presented and discussed in the scenario of the design of interactive dance-music systems.
