V'Oct(Ritual) places the audience inside a circular liminal space of sonic evocation and features the Bodycoder System© the first generation of which was developed by the artists in 1995. The Bodycoder interface is a flexible sensor array worn on the body of a performer that sends data generated by movement to an MSP environment via radio. All vocalisations, decision making, navigation of the MSP environment and qualities of expressivity are selected, initiated and manipulated by the performer, uniquely, this also includes access to gestural control of live 8-channel spatialization. This piece is fully scored with few moments of improvisation.
