With the decreasing audience of classical music performance, this research aims to develop a performance-enhancement system, called AIDA, to help classical performers better communicating with their audiences. With three procedures Input-Processing-Output, AIDA system can sense and analyze the body information of performers and further reflect it onto the responsive skin. Thus abstract and intangible emotional expressions of performers are transformed into tangible and concrete visual elements, which clearly facilitating the audiences’ threshold for music appreciation.
