It feels like I am dreaming

Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

Some video documentation of the Takahashi, light-based, approach.

There are sensors inside mask which inform how the lights function.
Everything is being generated and controlled by a Max patch and the (wireless) sensors are built around the x-io x-OSC and x-IMU devices.

*all visuals happened in realtime. No effects/editing was used to create the banding/glitches. They are a happy accident manifestation of the refresh rate of the DMX lights and the camera not playing nice together.

The audio is recordings during a previous performance. The nature of those performances where such that the canvas was turned it into an instrument. In this session (in the video), that is the audio that can be heard, but it was being processed live during this interaction between performers.

Watching this now, it feels like this is who dreamt┬áthat past…
