Mark Bromwich - 1999

Zeitgeist is a new work which features EDT's Bodycoder System; a wireless sensor suit designed to be worn by a dancer. The suit gives the performer real-time control of a variety of audio and visual parameters. The audio composition is 'played' by the dancer who controls the triggering and manipulation of sound files stored in a digital sampler. The visual elements of the piece consist of quick time movies and still images stored in a Macintosh computer. The images and movies are both triggered and modified in real time by the actions of the dancer.
