The Bodycoder interface is a flexible sensor array worn on the body of a performer that sends data generated by movement to an Max/MSP environment via radio. Movement data is mapped in a variety of ways to live processing and manipulation. The primary expression functionality of the Bodycoder System is Kinaesonic. The term Kinaesonic is derived from the compound of two words: Kinaesthetic meaning the movement principles of the body and Sonic meaning sound. In terms of interactive technology the term Kinaesonic refers to the one-to-one, mapping of sonic effects to bodily movements. In our practice this is usually executed in real-time.
