Choreographic Interfaces: Wearable Approaches to Movement Learning in Creative Processes

  title={Choreographic Interfaces: Wearable Approaches to Movement Learning in Creative Processes},
  author={Ozgun Kilic Afsar and Hila Mor and C{\'e}dric Honnet and Hiroshi Ishii},
In this position paper, we present a set of tangible and wearable computing approaches to creative movement learning and expertise. We aim to rethink and articulate how we can build a combination of tangible and computational tools that yield a novel and expressive somatic vocabulary for human bodies through a model concept that we call Choreographic Interfaces.

Movement qualities as interaction modality

A user experiment showed that an interaction based on movement qualities tends to enhance the user experience favouring explorative and expressive usage.

12. Trans-disciplinary Approaches to Research into Creation, Performance, and Appreciation of Contemporary Dance

Rich in gesture, expression and affect, contemporary dance is a heightened form of non-verbal communication. This chapter aims to demonstrate the need for new and diverse methods to investigate the

MirrorFugue: communicating hand gesture in remote piano collaboration

Playing a musical instrument involves a complex set of continuous gestures, both to play the notes and to convey expression. To learn an instrument, a student must learn not only the music itself but

Knotation: Exploring and Documenting Choreographic Processes

Knotation is a mobile pen-based tool that lets choreographers sketch their own representations of choreographic ideas and render them interactive, and uses the combination of interactive timelines and floorplan diagrams to represent and explore complex choreographic structures.

Dancing With Drones: Crafting Novel Artistic Expressions Through Intercorporeality

An analysis of an artistic process aimed to deliver a commissioned opera where custom-built drones are performing on stage alongside human performers, the importance of achieving an intercorporeal understanding to shape body-based emotional expressivity is observed.

Sketching On-Body Interactions using Piezo-Resistive Kinesiology Tape

This work proposes using piezo-resistive kinesiology tape as a low-cost and versatile resource for sketching functional on-skin interfaces and contributes a set of sensor primitives that facilitate various input modalities for creating interactive sketches.

Guitar Machine: Robotic Fretting Augmentation for Hybrid Human-Machine Guitar Play

The results indicate that the proposed human-robot interaction would equip users to explore new musical avenues on the guitar, as well as provide an enhanced understanding of the task at hand on the basis of the robotically acquired ability.

The Hybrid Artisans

The FreeD is a hand-held digital milling device, monitored by a computer while preserving the makers freedom to manipulate the work in many creative ways, demonstrating a hybrid interaction paradigm where human and machine work in synergy.

‘Getting it into the body’: understanding skill acquisition through Merleau-Ponty and the embodied practice of dance

Abstract This paper responds to calls across the sociological, philosophical and psychological dimensions of Sports Studies to attend to the promise of phenomenology as an approach to understanding

Venous Materials: Towards Interactive Fluidic Mechanisms

A design method for fluidic mechanisms that respond to deformation by mechanical inputs from the user, such as pressure and bending is presented, and a set of primitive venous structures that act as embedded analog fluidic sensors, displaying flow and color change are designed.
