Running Expressions is a real-time performance composition written in Kyma and Max/MSP. By capturing live physiological data, music is created and controlled within an 8-channel and video projection environment. The musical performance narrates a distance run, the psychological and emotional impacts of a running experience. Please wear headphones to take advantage the full audio spectrum.



Running Expressions: Revisited

For heart-rate monitor, two Nintendo Wiimotes, & two dual-axis accelerometers

Running Expressions: Revisited takes another look at my original Master's project, by rewriting the first half of the piece, editing other sections out, and ultimately reshaping the running journey of an intermedia experience.

Note: The video projection contains high brightness due to the location, although it captures a single continuous take. The first minute there is no audio due to the performer set-up, which is part of the work. Please wear headphones to take advantage of the full audio spectrum.
