Sound-Space Choreography

Document Thumbnail

As part of the European project BINCI, a new software tool to control sound sources in periphonic space called Choreographer is presented. The Choreographer permits to create three-dimensional source movements and work with self-curated sets of movements. Its integration inside the Binaural Home Studio (BHS) 3D audio production suite allows users to trigger and combine these movements in real-time performances. Parallel to the development process, the aesthetic possibilities of sound-movement have been investigated. Drawing from a review on how choreography in dance has approached aesthetic questions of movement, we discuss the relationships between working with sets of musical elements, the expressive possibilities of movement and notation. The results of this investigation have been used to present design proposals and musicologically informed features for the Choreographer.
