El mapa no es el territorio: Sensor mapping for audiovisual performances

Sguiglia, Fabián and Coton, Pauli and Toth, Fernando

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

We present El mapa no es el territorio (MNT), a set of open source tools that facilitate the design of visual and musical mappings for interactive installations and performance pieces. MNT is being developed by a multidisciplinary group that explores gestural control of audio-visual environments and virtual instruments. Along with these tools, this paper will present two projects in which they were used -interactive installation Memorias Migrantes and stage performance Recorte de Jorge Cárdenas Cayendo-, showing how MNT allows us to develop collaborative artworks that articulate body movement and generative audiovisual systems, and how its current version was influenced by these successive implementations.
