Algorithmic composition by Claudio Scozzafava. Written on Maxmsp and Ableton Live by Claudio Scozzafava, Coreography by Paola Sorressa, Computer Graphic and Chambre programming By Stefano Faralli. Dancers Paola Sorressa, Marte Scarsella, Giorgia Antonelli. Sala Oeidon, Museo di Arte Classica, University La Sapienza, Rome, Italy 21 september 2004.
A webCam capture the dancers in the stage. The stage is interpreted as a matrix M of size 3x3, representing the spatial grid in which the three dancers are moving durin the performance. Here Max/Msp receive a formatted string from CHAMBRE that perform some image processing algorithms to recognize the dancers position. Max is used as an algorithmic string translator steering a deterministic finite state automaton, where the transitions occur upon the identification of well defined patterns. The graphic server receives by Max/Msp, via TCP/IP, the messages to perform a state change and the resulting video is projected in the screen in front of the dancers. The audio samples are processed using Ableton Live in REWIRE slave configuration, where Max/Msp controls the "scene" opening, effects parameters etc.
