Hi, everyone! I've been doing my PhD research on the use of motion capture devices in performing arts. As part of it, we developed a timeline oriented software for easy experimentation with MS Kinect controlling sound, lights and projections. The main idea is that no programming skills are required. I thought some of you guys might be interested in having a look. So, here it goes:

Feel free to contact me if you have any queries or comments. ;)

Hi I am choreographing a contemporary dance piece with dancers holding their mobile phones while dancing - i wanted to know

1. Is there any video or mention of works where mobile phones were used during a performance

2. I also wanted to know if there is any easy way of transmitting the visuals on the mobile phone while dancing onto a projection during a performance . 


would appreciate any advise

We've used a bunch of cheap wireless cameras, but nothing I'd recommend....Make sure the wireless signal is strong enough, that's all I gotta say.

Suggestions for a (wearable) wireless camera for performance?  Thanks!
