Denise Mireau, owner and director of the Studio for Movement, performs a dance using Wearable Technology. The concept for this piece is based on chance operations used by the composer John Cage and the choreographer Merce Cunningham to create innovative music and dance. The technology embedded in the costume consists of an accelerometer, Lilypad Arduino, rechargeable lithium polymer battery and a bluetooth device. The data retrieved from the accelerometer is sent to "Processing" where the data is programmed to trigger sound files through the computer. Although the dancer's movement triggers sound, she has no control over what sounds will play. Created by Loretta Faveri, student, OCADU (Ontario College of Art & Design University).
