Motion Grains

Motion Grains is an interactive instrument, where the sound is affected by movement.

I’m working on this project with Sian Palmer, a contemporary dancer and movement therapist based in Johannesburg.

The motion tracking system analyses the dancer and changes parameters from a granular synthesizer. As visualization, I’m converting the sonic grains into yellow dots that simulate bird flocking behavior, using the Boids artificial life algorithm. You can find all the info on the video below.
