Listening to the human body moving

Saturday 23 March: 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, CB1 1PT

Anyone who has ever seen the Bolshoi Ballet, Riverdance or a figure skating competition can appreciate the notion that music and human physiology can be intrinsically intertwined. If music is a structured language that enables us to examine and communicate periodicity, fluctuations, patterns and relations, what an ideal tool it can be to study the human body – a complex collection of cycles, periodicity, fluctuations and transitions.

These properties are related to musical concepts such as pitch, timbre and modulation, vibrations and oscillations. Discover how to create music from dance, using sensors to capture human movements and turning them into melodies using microcontrollers. Presented by Domenico Vicinanza, ARU.
