DES GESTES TOUCHANTS (2014)
Alexis Crawshaw, vibrotactile music. Guest artist Maud Watel-Kazak, mime and dance. Featuring the CREATE ensemble, directed by Matt Wright
“Touching gestures” is an interdisciplinary, collaborative improvisational performance with the computer music of the CREATE Ensemble led by Matthew Wright, comic mime and dance performance by guest artist/actress Maud Watel-Kazak, and a vibrotactile music component by Alexis Story Crawshaw. This work explores different rapports of « mapping » and « feedback » between the domains of theater and electroacoustic music. It will also investigate the musicality of touch using vibrotactile actuators, thereby inviting synaesthestic associations through gesture across three modalities: sonic, visual, and tactile.
