“Greek Precarious Body: Future forms of dramaturgy through hacked and retro technology, going towards a material opera” is is an open Sound Laboratory that utilizes live art performance to explore future sound dramaturgies, through motion tracking and live editing techniques. The artist proposes an open to the audience space in the form of work-in-progress artwork, where live performers will be producing soundscapes through their abstract and restrictive wearables. The sound design of the performance is mainly based on the authentic sounds produced by the materials themselves. She aims to enhance the notion of restriction, by giving control of the sound to the performing body. Through the use of kinect’s skeleton tracking module, each movement of the body causes a distinct effect on the produced sonar qualities. The artist creates a soundscape that takes the initial source of the material and through the agency of the performing body, arrives at a transformation by several audio effects and compositional techniques.
