Bodies as Music: Using Technology in Dance Movement to Manipulate Stage Lighting · PERFORMANCE

Professor: Rich Dionne

Using data taken from movement sensors on dancers’ bodies, we created software and hardware that allows the use of this data to control stage lighting to create an interactive performance environment. My professor and I developed a system to allow users to configure their own sensor setup, choose algorithms to manipulate the data, and broadcast data packages through OSC messages on a closed network.

CS407: Senior Project


We built an Apple Watch app to help humans on the spectrum learn volume management. The app gives haptic feedback to the speakers as they get closer to being too loud for their setting to help them understand what is appropriate without needing someone else to cue them.
