Translation between Dance and Music
DescriptionAlways performed together, music and dance share similarities and correspondences. This project is exploring an innovative strategy of deeper engagement between music and dance.
In this project, a 1-minute clip from the ballet Giselle Act I (Scene 1.7 Peasant Pas de Deux, Male 1st Variation) is analyzed, and new music clips are generated and developed.
Dancing movement is motion captured and transformed into signals, and Benesh Dance Notation is mapped onto music notation written in the similar structure of 5-line stave.
A New Symphony is created by overlaying the original music and generated music clips.
