1. Interactive music for enhanced body
    (Xth Sense Biophysical Wearable Technology)

    What you listen to are muscle sounds. They come from within the performer's body. They are amplified, and played back through loudspeakers. With the aid of a computer the performer samples the sound of his own flesh in real time.

    This work is based on the Xth Sense biophysical technology developed by the author.
    No pre-recorded sounds, MIDI, motion tracking system, Kinect, or other movement or light sensors are used in the piece.


    Recorded live at The University of Edinburgh, UK, March 2011.

    Xth Sense is:

    - a low-cost biosensing wearable hardware device;
    - a DSP modular software for capture, analysis and processing of biological sounds of the body (Pure Data-based).


    Designed and developed by Marco Donnarumma with the support of:
    ACE Sound Design, The University of Edinburgh
    Dorkbot ALBA @ Edinburgh Hacklab

    Special thanks to Marianna Cozzolino and Andrea Donnarumma.

  3. The Motion Project was a collaboration between a lot of clever creative people working together to create a machine that turns motion into music. The client for the project, Frucor (makers of V energy drink), together with their agency Colenso BBDO, kitted-out a warehouse space for this project to grow in and gathered together a group of talented people from a number of creative fields.


    We created and designed the live visual spectacle with a music video being produced from the results. We wanted it to be clear that the technology was real and actually being played live. The interface plays a key role in illustrating the idea of the instrument and we designed it to highlight the audio being controlled by the dancer. Design elements like real time tracking and samples being drawn on as they are played all add to authenticity of the performance. The visuals are all created live and the music video is essentially a real document of the night.

  4. 'An Evening with Hindole Majumdar and Kevin Schlei' was a concert on August 19th, 2012 that explored electronics + tabla. This piece, 'Idiom,' is a fully improvised, on-the-spot composition by myself and Hindole. A basic rhythmic pattern forms that he and I use to ground ourselves, and we play off of each other's accents and phrases.

    I am using my iPad instrument TC-11 with three iPads, and Hindole is playing his D tabla set with an extra E dayan. You can find more information about Hindole at his website, sites.google.com/site/hindolemajumdar/, and about TC-11 at bitshapesoftware.com/instruments/tc-11
