Creative Process and Pedagogy with Interactive Dance, Music, and Image

  • Kerry Francksen, Bret Battey and Jo Breslin

Abstract

This lecture-demonstration reflects on a research-informed teaching project in which teaching staff in dance and music technology collaborated on technical and pedagogic research and artistic creation in interactive dance. Our primary aim was to throw light on how interactive technologies might challenge and develop the ways in which students in dance and music technology engage in creative practice. Through the exploration of a set of technologies and conceptual approaches, the research has revealed very particular compositional structures and methods. Experimental sketches were developed with a particular focus on emergent behaviour and richly behavioured audio-visual feedback systems that were both controlled by and influenced the dancers. The demonstration presents our approaches and offers methodologies and strategies for the use of new technologies in dance pedagogy.
