algorhythm

Algorhythm is the the sonic component of an interactive dance piece developed by Paige Cunningham and Erin Feiler at the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago. The composition is a Pure Data (Pd) system which reacts to the actions of dancers tapping, landing, stepping, pounding, or touching six piezo sensors attached to pads at the lip of the stage. It is the interaction of the dancers with the sensors which both generates sonic events and progresses the work forward.
