A workshop I coordinated at Aalto’s LUME studios for sound designers and dancers. During the week each sound designer built a sensor pack, then collaborated with a dancer, who brought the sounds to life. Dancers’ movements triggered and manipulated the sounds.
In a collaboration with choreographer Hanna Pajala-Assefa, sound designer Aki Päivärinne and costume designer Liisa Pesonen, we curated a five day course that gave new media sound designers a crash course on dance, the body, electronics and programming.
The Monday was comprised of movement exercises, some lectures on the human body and some theory of sound in dance. Tuesday was the designated tech day.
Thanks to all the participants.
Sound Designers: Jani Hietenen, Camilo Sánchez Carranco, Melike Ceylan, Joonas Kristian.
