Large-area moderator tracking and demonstrational configuration of position based interactions for virtual studios
In most contemporary forms of musical and other technologically mediated artistic performance, systems are used where digital control information is transmitted from the interfaces used by the performers, to the devices producing the intended output. There is considerable ongoing discussion regarding how this control data is mapped between its source and destination; however in this discourse mappings have always only been treated as remaining fixed during the course of the performance. We describe here a novel performance role, that of the 'mapping engineer', whose task is to manipulate the mapping during a performance, gradually altering and re-routing digital control data. Additionally we introduce a user interface paradigm towards facilitating the mapping engineers' task, an implementation demonstrated with the 'Mediator' software.
