Sonic Limb is a sound installation/performance piece that Yiran and her team made, which uses a Kinect camera running into MAX/MSP/jitter, to trigger sound clips based on what limb you are moving. It creates an incentive for people to do the ‘interactive art dance’ when you move around trying to find out what the thing does. The more you move, the better it sounds, which is really interesting in practice because people are almost always self- conscious about the rest of the audience, and as they get more into it, that consciousness falls away (for some people). We are really interested in investigating ways to use movement to manipulate sound (without touching any controller).
This project was performed in World Stage Design Exhibition 2017 in Taipei.
